Network Insights: Impact Measurement in the Healthcare Sector

GIIN, Network Membership March 31, 2017

The GIIN, with support from the U.K. Government through the Department for International Development’s Impact Programme, released, Network Insights: Impact Measurement in the Healthcare Sector. The report examines the impact measurement approaches of 13 GIIN members (including development finance institutions (DFIs), fund managers, banks, and foundations) who invest directly into healthcare delivery companies— detailing the metrics, methodologies, and assumptions that are commonly used by these investors, as well as the challenges and limitations they face.

The report aims to bring greater transparency to the diversity and limitations of current impact measurement approaches, facilitate shared learning, and provide a tangible resource for those who are new to the sector or seeking to improve practice. This is the second publication from Network Insights, a GIIN series that looks to capture and share key insights from the GIIN member network (the first publication, Network Insights: Impact Measurement in the Clean Energy Sector, was released in April 2016).
