HANSHEP Health Enterprise Fund: Innovating Health Care for the Poor

In 2013, the SHOPS project developed the HANSHEP Health Enterprise Fund (HHEF) to identify innovative and replicable private sector solutions that address critical health challenges in sub-Saharan Africa. The fund offers early-stage enterprises grant financing, technical assistance, and connections to partners and investors. Through a competitive process, the fund selected 16 grantees in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Nigeria. In this publication, SHOPS reviews barriers the poor face, highlights results the fund has achieved in just two years, and features some of the stories behind the ambitious and visionary work of the awardees.
