Looks at the range of innovations that have emerged in recent years to improve financing for global health objectives, and examines various approaches, including global levies like UNITAID and UNITLIFE; an array of market shaping initiatives like prizes and challenges and the GAVI Alliance’s advanced market commitments; a variety of innovations related to debt, including loan forgiveness and ‘debt swaps’ administered through the Global Fund, Pledge Guarantee for Health, the International Finance Facility for Immunization (IFFIm)’s vaccine bonds; and equity investments—impact investment vehicles like the Global Health Investment Fund—that blend philanthropic and commercial capital for drug research and development and other health interventions.

Keywords:   UNITAID, UNITLIFE, loan forgiveness, ‘debt swaps’, Global Health Investment Fund
