India has the highest TB burden in the world and one of the highest malaria burdens. To advance the country’s fight to eliminate TB by 2025 and malaria by 2030, new investments, new tools and high-impact solutions are key.
Tata Trusts, in partnership with the Global Fund, launched the India Health Fund as the first platform to aggregate and invest philanthropic capital to accelerate the elimination of TB and malaria in India.
With seed funding of US$15 million from Tata Trusts, the India Health Fund acts as an aggregator of resources from Indian and global foundations, family offices and other private- and public-sector institutions to ensure the efficient review and scale up of innovative solutions, taking them from “lab to last mile.”
Tata Trusts and the Global Fund have collaborated on the strategy, design, rollout and effective resourcing of the India Health Fund since 2016. Social Alpha is the incubation partner to accelerate the lab-to-last-mile journey of selected innovations.
