What we do

We improve health for everyone by funding research, leading policy and advocacy campaigns, and building global partnerships.  

We work with people and organisations using science to solve health challenges. We fund discovery research into life, health and wellbeing, and we support research to find solutions to three health challenges: mental health, infectious disease and climate.

We fund discovery research  

We fund research across a wide range of disciplines that have the potential to make important discoveries about life, health and wellbeing.  

We take on worldwide health challenges  

We want to find solutions to three of the most urgent health challenges. The best solutions will come through partnerships across science and society, and will be developed together with the people most affected.
