COVID-19 underlines the need for accessible healthcare

I was invited as one of the panelists to attend a webinar about healthcare investments in Africa. The main question there was how the ongoing pandemic has reshaped the healthcare investment landscape. Some things may have changed during this very exceptional year but in my opinion, most things have not. We are a long-term impact investor, and our mandate is to help companies grow. This fact hasn’t changed. If anything, COVID-19 has made us all aware of how important it is to have sufficient reliable healthcare resources. Many of our target countries have public healthcare systems that are currently not able to meet the needs of the growing populations.
