Instituto Salus is the first nursing institution in Mexico specialized in training people to become paramedical and geriatric care professionals enabling them to find purposeful, meaningful and well-remunerated jobs in their neighborhoods. It targets women under two age segments – 15-21 and 40-55. Its innovative educational model encourages its students to develop critical thinking, values, social purpose and independence to generate a real change in their quality of life and in the lives of others through the proper application of knowledge.
Being a disruptive educational platform enabling women to provide first class health and geriatric care education to those at the bottom of the pyramid in Mexico, Gray Matters Capital saw Insituto Salus as a strategic fit in line with its mission statement of education leading to a meaningful life for 100 million women.
Gray Matters Capital’s investment in Instituto Salus is being used to create two training centers in Mexico City and comes at an appropriate time, when there is a national shortage of nurses, an increase in the elderly population and the need to create opportunities for students to return to the community.
