Where can a small investment have a big impact?  

Supporting organizations to innovate 

Surgo Foundation provides financial support to organizations that are pushing the boundaries of development to help them further innovate and kick start high-risk initiatives. These include Ariadne Labs and the Clinton Health Access Initiative. 

Ariadne Labs, a joint center of Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, develops innovative healthcare delivery approaches to address three critical moments in life – childbirth, serious illness, and during surgery. By identifying the points that can most benefit from systematic improvement, Ariadne Labs designs new platforms to catalyze large-scale changes in how providers deliver care, and in health outcomes for millions of people most at need. 

The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) focuses on work that transforms the way governments approach and realize development goals. CHAI addresses systems challenges by working closely with government on the delivery of interventions. Surgo Foundation provides seed funding for a broad spectrum of new programming to improve efficiencies, strengthen supply chains, and address the needs of the most vulnerable via programs in nutrition, maternal and neonatal health, and tuberculosis.
