Health & Education
Health and education are the foundation for human development. As the world’s largest multilateral investor in private health care, IFC supports the industry by providing financing, sharing knowledge, supporting public-private collaboration, and helping shape government policy. In education, we work with the private sector to expand access to high-quality, affordable, and relevant education for all.
In FY19, our new long-term commitments in health and education totaled about $670 million, including $295 million mobilized from other investors.
