Stell dir vor, ...
While many of us have a higher life expectancy than our parents and grandparents, and while we expect to have greater wealth than generations before us, millions of people live in poverty, and billions more struggle to get by. They cannot access basic healthcare and vaccinations, making them far more vulnerable to deadly diseases. They cannot access quality education to strengthen their economic future.

Some of the gaps we want to close are:

  • Nearly 50% of the world lives on less than $6.85 per day
  • Globally, 1 in 5 children do not have access to essential immunizations
  • A pregnant woman in Nigeria is over 200 times more likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth than a woman in Sweden

The Global Health & Development Fund addresses the vast inequalities in health, wealth, and opportunity. We don’t restrict ourselves to pre-determined problems or regions. 

  • We maximize impact by striking a balance between scale and certainty of outcomes in the initiatives we support. We aim to be risk-neutral.
  • We collaborate with other organizations to ensure the fund fills a unique gap in the ecosystem.
  • We explore ways of giving that may not be easy or available to most donors, including higher-risk or time-sensitive opportunities.
Our decision-making is guided by three core values: impact, innovation, and flexibility:

  1. To maximise impact, our grant portfolio includes both direct interventions, like funding the development of new crisis communications technology or personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as research and hits-based bets. Hits-based bets are initiatives where success is less certain, but where there is potential to improve many more lives if successful.
  2. We are committed to innovation, including developing new and better approaches to grantmaking, and providing seed funding for novel projects
  3. We maintain flexibility to respond rapidly to emerging crises and windows of opportunity. We work with networks of domain experts, trusted partners, and government decision-makers to identify new opportunities, and deploy funds in the most effective ways.
