Evercare is an integrated healthcare delivery platform operating in growth markets across Africa and South Asia, including India, Pakistan, Kenya and Nigeria. It helps communities thrive by improving patient access to clinic and hospital operations, leveraging technology and integration to increase the quality of care. Evercare is building a foundation of continuous quality improvement and standardized care to improve clinical outcomes and patient safety.

Evercare is wholly owned by the Evercare Health Fund, an emerging markets healthcare fund managed by TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity investment platform of TPG that also manages The Rise Fund, a global impact investing fund.

This investment was made when British International Investment was named CDC Group.

Our investment

Description of the investment.

CDC invested into the fund, alongside the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, healthcare operators such as Philips and Medtronic, as well as other DFIs, including the African Development Bank, and France’s Proparco.

Our investment will provide accessible, affordable and high-quality treatment for non-communicable diseases.

Expected impact

Expected impact of investments made between 2012 and 2018. From 2019 onwards, we have published a fuller set of impact information, assessing each investment against six dimensions of impact.

Lack of access to medical resources and inefficient healthcare systems across Africa and Asia continue to deliver poor outcomes for a large number of the population. From Nigeria to Bangladesh, Kenya to Pakistan, low- and middle-income countries trail their richer counterparts on healthcare provision.

Our investment will enable the fund manager to focus on improving care in the fields of non-communicable disease and mother and child health. It will initially operate in 10 cities across Africa and South Asia, including Lagos, Karachi, Accra and Nairobi, which represent a combined catchment area of 250 million people.

The fund will create a network of healthcare facilities – from tertiary hospitals to labs and imaging centres – that can share resources. By connecting facilities and personnel across specialities and geographies, for example through telehealth and doctor exchange programmes, the fund manager aims to improve access to good quality healthcare for people living in underserved areas.

The project will also create or maintain jobs for 7,500 people across its portfolio companies and train over 5,200 health workers.
