Durable Healthcare

Traditional models of healthcare operating on their own fail to solve the problems of the world’s poorest patients.

The poorest can’t access the private sector due to cost. The public sector fails to deliver on quality. And philanthropy can produce pockets of excellence, but can’t achieve the scale needed.

As a result, there is a huge market of people who are not served by these three standard approaches. But there is a fourth way — what we call durable healthcare.

Durable healthcare is a healthcare system design that solves for the poorest patients. It’s a public-private partnership that enables a nonprofit healthcare company to be paid by the government to deliver healthcare within the government’s infrastructure.

It brings together the quality of the private sector, access of the public sector, and innovation enabled by philanthropy. And it ties core financing to performance.

“This design brings together the best assets of each sector: the government finances and provides infrastructure, we bring management acumen and only get paid if we deliver outcomes. Most importantly, because we are a nonprofit healthcare company, we only need to achieve cost recovery, not profitability. That changes everything. It allows us to go where no private company would see opportunity and use the combination of government funding and philanthropy to build a system that works fully for the poor.”
