SAMRIDH IS A HEALTHCARE BLENDED FINANCE FACILITY STRENGTHENING INDIA'S HEALTH SYSTEMS AND SOLVING EMERGING HEALTHCARE CHALLENGES

Sustainable Access to Markets and Resources for Innovative Delivery of Healthcare (SAMRIDH) is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in collaboration with Atal Innovation Mission (NITI Aayog), Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India, the National Health Authority, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Delhi), Axis Bank, IndusInd Bank, Caspian Debt, Rockefeller Foundation, Crypto Relief and NATHEALTH, and is managed by IPE Global. Through this initiative, SAMRIDH combines commercial capital with public and philanthropic funds to drive greater resources towards market-based health solutions that can improve access to affordable and quality healthcare services for India’s most vulnerable.

SAMRIDH has mobilized a capital pool of $250 million to offer both grant and debt financing provision to healthcare enterprises and innovators, to augment their capacity for production and supply of high impact health solutions. This is complemented with a strong technical assistance and capacity building component, enabling enterprises to unlock new sources of capital through blended financing solutions, for long-term sustainability and expansion.

VISION

HEALTHCARE ENTERPRISES

A CHALLENGE AND A PROMISE TO STRENGTHEN
INDIA’S HEALTH SYSTEM

The COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted services and stressed the country’s healthcare sector, has exposed the gaps in the system’s ability to address emerging healthcare needs. The pandemic has also led to the creation of new demand pools and market opportunities. There is an increasing need for new technologies, digital health solutions and innovative care delivery models.

This shift in the ecosystem has brought innovators to the forefront of health systems transformation. They are now recognized more than ever to bring to the table unique propositions to address complex healthcare challenges, and transform the Indian healthcare services.

However, despite the promise healthcare innovators and enterprises hold for India’s health systems, they face many systemic hurdles on the journey from ‘lab to market.’
