Julia Kaufman Janeen Madan Keller Rachel Silverman write: Health sector investments present an opportunity for the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), under the Biden-Harris administration, to demonstrate meaningful global leadership and refocus on its development mandate, driving broader health benefits and contributing to global economic recovery. DFC’s early days have been defined by a mixed record, notably in the health sector. Still, in the context of the pandemic’s health and economic impacts, the agency is well positioned to help strengthen pandemic preparedness and expand equitable access to health products and innovation in low- and middle-income countries. Through investments to build private sector manufacturing and delivery capacity, DFC can help stem and reverse these losses and insure against future health crises.
