ADB Health Investor Brief

This brief provides summary information for investors on ADB's health policy, framework, as well as development impact to ADB's total portfolio.

Addressing health sector challenges is costly. It requires significant social and health infrastructure, a highly skilled and available workforce, accessible diagnostic technology, and integrated care. Regional demand for health care now needs more than traditional donor funding. It requires scalable and groundbreaking investments, to promote quality and cost-effective health care.

To meet investment targets, ADB has developed an Operational Plan for Health (OPH) which will focus on three priority areas: (1) Health infrastructure (2) Health Governance & Regional Public Goods (3) Health Financing. By focusing on these priority areas to double its health portfolio, ADB also facilitates dialog and support from cofinanciers, development and technical partners both in the region and globally.

The ADB Health Investor brief summarizes ADB's health policy, framework, as well as development impact to ADB's total portfolio. The brief also features 2 sample health project: its health development need and project summary.
