The Project

Rhia Ventures is working to develop an investment framework that prioritizes equitable outcomes in reproductive and maternal health in the United States. It will develop, test, and share an approach that incorporates a racial and gender equity lens into reproductive and maternal health investments, helping investors and early- and growth-stage companies align structures, policies, and practices and, ultimately, making the market more just, with improved health outcomes for people of color.  

Values and Outcomes

Rhia Ventures’ project addresses a major gap in a sector that often requires significant catalytic capital investments. Less than 2% of venture capital is invested in women’s health, and only 1% is invested in women’s health beyond oncology. Further, people of color face particular barriers to reproductive and maternal healthcare, which often results in negative health outcomes. The incorporation of a racial and gender equity lens into reproductive and maternal health investments has the potential to spur investment and innovation and reduce health disparities.
