Global research collaboration for infectious disease preparedness


A global coalition of research funders

We facilitate cooperation among funding organizations that invest in research to improve pandemic preparedness & response.

Our working groups

We are launching a powerful new tracker of research funding and evidence in early 2024 as part of PACT, the Pandemic Analytical Capacity and Funding Tracking Programme.

Our work

Through our working groups, we identify gaps and areas of duplication to ensure that investment in priority research areas is balanced and coordinated, with a focus on lower resourced settings. Our work aims to support R&D to generate knowledge and solutions that will save lives.


Improving the way funders work together is essential so that the world will be better prepared for the next infectious disease outbreak. The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that none of us is safe until all of us are safe.
