The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $44,627 to the Georgetown Center for Global Health Science and Security (GHSS) for general support. We previously recommended a grant to GHSS for general support in 2017; the goal of this supplemental funding is to collect data about Libya’s pandemic preparedness capacity and also to establish a model process that can be applied in other countries in the region where it is difficult to obtain data due to political instability or ongoing conflict.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
