Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $50,000 to AcceleratingHT, via the University of Chicago, for general support. AcceleratingHT intends to use this funding to accelerate the development and widespread availability of vaccines against COVID-19 by supporting governments and global health institutions in their use of Advanced Market Commitments and other financing tools.

This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
