The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $19,500,000 over three years to the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (CHS) to support work on biosecurity, global catastrophic risks posed by pathogens, and other work related to CHS’s mission, and to support the Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative. CHS plans to use these funds to continue to conduct policy research and continue to build communications and advocacy capacity.

This follows our October 2016 and January 2017 support , and falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
