We believe that health is and will increasingly become an important investment domain. Because a healthy planet goes hand in hand with a healthy population. The healthcare sector, however, is coming under increasing pressure to offer affordable but quality care for everyone. We at VP Capital have therefore made several direct and indirect investments in this domain and intend to continue doing so in the future. In addition, we are committed to donating funds to key initiatives that help solve key challenges both today and tomorrow.
On the left are the key challenges of the Health domain listed. Possible solutions where our donations can make a difference:
- Organisations that support countries in safeguarding the quality of available medical products, by improving the traceability and countering the use of sub-standard or counterfeit medical products
- Initiatives aimed at enhancing the quality of the natural environment in order to improve quality of life
- Initiatives which promote healthy living, e.g. by raising awareness for the dangers of certain individual lifestyle choices
- Projects which improve access to healthcare for people in low-income countries

Together with the independent professional impact organisation Telos impact, we’ve compiled a shortlist of worthwhile causes that make a tangible contribution to overcoming key challenges in the health domain. The selection is based on extensive due diligence and a thorough analysis of such criteria as impact, management & governance, finance, operations and the organisation’s general action plan. This exercise is performed every year to determine which organisation or organisations make the most significant contribution.
Within the health domain, we have selected the non-profit organisation Healthy Entrepreneurs. Healthy Entrepreneurs earned the highest rating in Telos screening on account of its positive contribution to reducing the cost and increasing the accessibility of healthcare and medication. In addition, the organisation tackles challenges related to the integration of digital solutions with an emphasis on prevention, diagnosis and early intervention.
Healthy Entrepreneurs provides basic healthcare where nobody else will go. The organisation’s trained healthcare workers sell healthcare products and offer explanations and advice in their own mini-pharmacies. And thanks to the dedication of these passionate entrepreneurs, isolated villages are transformed into strong, healthy and well informed communities.Website Healthy Entrepreneurs
