Impact Investing in Preventive Healthcare
This paper provides a landscape overview of the healthcare system in Canada, and outlines a role for impact investors. The financial burden on the healthcare system can be lessened if the population becomes healthier, and if long-term conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases become less prevalent. Impact investors can play a role in reducing the prevalence of long-term, chronic conditions by focusing capital allocation on preventive health practices. We highlight three programs that can link private capital and positive health outcomes together.
