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.
This fundraiser was set up as part of the EA Forum Donation Election event, but it’s a normal fundraiser: donations to this fundraiser will be designated for Global Health and Development Fund, not for the Donation Election Fund or anything else.
Please also note that donating to this fundraiser does not count as a vote for the Global Health and Development Fund in the Donation Election (see more about how the Election works here.)
The Forum Team (or the Online Team at the Centre for Effective Altruism) runs the EA Forum, the EA Newsletter, and the EA Forum Digest, and works on some other projects. Find them on the EA Forum.
