GHI is building a carefully integrated portfolio of investments in six focus areas that are outside of Merck's core pharmaceuticals, vaccines, consumer products, and animal health businesses. As a strategic growth investor, GHI's goal is to grow emerging health care solutions into meaningful businesses. Companies we invest in typically have current revenues, a strong business plan and high growth potential.
