Vox Capital backs Sanar to train healthcare professionals in Brazil

ImpactAlpha, April 2 – Sanar, an education tech startup based in Salvador in northern Brazil, is trying to bridge a health services gap: Brazil has the world’s highest number of medical schools per capita, but most are located in the big cities in the southern part of the country.

Most Brazilians have access to primary care clinics and emergency rooms, but specialists are in short supply outside of major cities. Sanar develops teaching materials for healthcare professionals, as well as students studying for medical careers.

Since 2013, Sanar has served over 60,000 students and practitioners. Vox Capital, based in Sao Paulo, led Sanar’s Series A round, which included e.Bricks Ventures, a Brazilian digital media investment firm. Vox has raised about $120 million in two funds.
