Social impact bonds are being looked at more and more as a way to finance public health initiatives. These new and flexible tools are spurring innovations in public health programs. With each new innovation more is learned about the potential and limitation of these new tools, and what legal tools could be used to promote the development and use of social impact bonds to advance public health objectives.
This webinar will describe the structure and function of the social impact bond model and summarize new innovations that use the model to fund various public health initiatives, including asthma and early childhood development. Speakers will also outline some of the limitations of the social impact bond model, explore recent state and federal legislative efforts to address them and provide perspectives of social impact bond implementers and investors.
The conference theme this year is “Advancing Health Equity in Maine through Community Health Workers.” Keynote speakers include Jason Turi of the nationally renowned Camden Coalition, on “CHWs and Leadership/Adoption of CHWs in Traditional Care Settings,” and Don Operario, PhD, Associate Professor of Public Health, Brown University, on the challenging needs for equitable and improved access to services for vulnerable populations, including people living with HIV and Hepatitis.
