Supporting novel treatments and research could improve the welfare of many people in the developing world.
Science for Global Health
We seek to support scientific research that may extend the human healthspan and improve quality of life for the global poor.
While many of GiveWell’s top charities focus on scaling up existing cost-effective health treatments, we also see promising opportunities to support scientific research focused on developing new treatments for diseases that primarily affect the global poor, whose conditions are often neglected by other actors. By investing in new knowledge, we can also help create global public goods. Many of the grants in this category are part of our Scientific Research team’s Human Health and Wellbeing grantmaking.
