The Global Health and Development Fund aims to support funding opportunities that 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 Fund primarily supports projects that:
The Fund manager recommends grants to GiveWell’s top charities as a baseline, but will recommend higher-risk grants they believe to be more effective (in expectation) than GiveWell’s top charities. As such, the Fund makes grants with a variety of different risk profiles.
Recent grant recipients include:
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).
We previously included the Global Health and Development Fund on our list of recommendations because it is managed by the impact-focused grantmaker Effective Altruism Funds. We’ve since updated our recommendations to reflect only funds managed by grantmakers we’ve looked into as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations; while we’ve looked into EA Funds in its capacity as a grantmaker in the reducing global catastrophic risks space and the animal welfare space (and as such, we recommend the Long-Term Future Fund and the Animal Welfare Fund) we’ve yet to look into its grantmaking in other areas. As such, we don't currently include this fund as one of our recommended programs but you can still donate to it via our donation platform.
