Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $400,000 to the Center for Global Development (CGD) to support work to calculate the net health impacts of COVID-19 in various countries. CGD intends for the calculations to estimate the indirect effects of COVID-19 on mortality and health due to suspended health services, malnutrition, and reduced economic activity. This research could help inform measures to limit the spread of the virus and mitigate its downstream harmful effects.
