Global Health and Development Fund

Global Health and Development Fund

The Global Health and Development Fund aims to improve the health or economic empowerment of people around the world as effectively as possible.

The Global Health and Development Fund recommends grants with the aim of improving people's lives, typically in the poorest regions of the world where the need for healthcare and economic empowerment is greatest. This will be achieved primarily by supporting projects that:

  • Directly provide healthcare, or preventive measures that will improve health, well-being, or life expectancy
  • Directly provide services that raise incomes or otherwise improve economic conditions
  • Provide assistance to governments in the design and implementation of effective policies

In addition, the Global Health and Development Fund has a broad remit, and may fund other activities whose ultimate purpose is to serve people living in the poorest regions of the world, for example by raising additional funds (e.g. One for the World) or by exploring novel financing arrangements (e.g. Instiglio).

The Fund manager recommends grants to GiveWell top charities as a baseline, but will recommend higher-risk grants they believe to be more effective (in expectation) than GiveWell top charities. As such, the fund makes grants with a variety of different risk profiles.
