Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $90,000 to the Botswana–Harvard AIDS Institute to support an NIH-funded study led by Dr. Jeff Klausner. This study is investigating the early diagnosis and treatment of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea in pregnant women in order to prevent adverse neonatal outcomes. This grant will cover cost overruns caused by COVID-19.
This falls within our focus area of scientific research, specifically within our interest in advancing human health and wellbeing.
