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 have launched our powerful new tracker of research funding and evidence as part of PACT, the Pandemic Analytical Capacity and Funding Tracking Programme.

About us

GloPID-R brings together funders investing in research related to new or re-emerging infectious diseases. Our aim is to increase preparedness and speed up the research response to outbreaks with pandemic potential.

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. GloPID-R supports better preparedness by strengthening research capacity, particularly in low-resource settings.



GloPID-R coordinates the work of funders to ensure a timely, effective research response to infectious disease outbreaks with epidemic and pandemic potential. We map emerging research trends, identify priorities, and develop tools and practical guidance for funders.


35 members & 8 observers

In addition to GloPID-R’s 35 member funding organizations, CEPI, EDCTP, ERINHA, ESSENCE on Health Research, GAVI, GOARN, ISIII and WHO are also actively engaged in the network as observers.
