Preventing the Next Pandemic

About this fund

COVID-19 uncovered global vulnerabilities to a tiny enemy: viruses. The world cannot afford to revert to its pre-COVID complacency about pandemics. We must start building systems now to find, stop, and prevent future deadly disease outbreaks.

Together, we can use our best ideas to stop pandemics for good.
