Tata Trusts and The Global Fund launch ‘The India Health Fund’

Tata Trusts, in association with The Global Fund, launched ‘The India Health Fund (IHF)’, at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai yesterday. The India Health Fund is a pioneering vehicle by Tata Trusts, designed to not only influence philanthropic capital within India, but also serve as a trusted mechanism to generate significant impact in addressing key health challenges in the country – starting with malaria and tuberculosis.

The IHF looks at catalyzing agility and innovation within large scaled programs of The Global Fund and the Government of India. Addressing infectious diseases like TB and malaria, the India Health Fund plans to support programs and projects that develop new products or strategies for innovative business models and innovative partnerships or financing mechanisms that significantly scale existing effective solutions.

The investments made by the IHF will be aligned to national strategies and link to clear pathways of scale including government platforms, private health networks, open source technology or sustainable organization growth. The India Health Fund is a lead initiative of Tata Trusts, with technical support from the Global Fund.
