Now more than ever, it’s clear that our health is not guaranteed.
Life expectancy and healthcare have progressed infinitely in our lifetimes, but there are still many diseases that we have yet to understand how to prevent or cure. We are also drastically under prepared to fight new and emerging illnesses. As the effects of climate change take hold, so too will the associated health challenges, and many further epidemics and pandemics are predicted.
“We have to create a healthier, more equitable future for everyone. By investing in 8 billion lives and by using a flexible, innovative, partnership-driven approach, our goal is to overcome the health challenges of today and ensure healthy lives tomorrow.”
We are a force for urgently needed new and better global health solutions
The WHO Foundation sets out to protect the health and well-being of everyone, in every part of the world, working to support the World Health Organization (WHO) and the global health community. We bring together everyone who can play a role in world health to address the most pressing health challenges of today and tomorrow.
We inspire partnerships for rapid, direct and transparent impact
We unleash the capabilities of everyone we work with, to transform global health. Through our independent approach to grant-making, we drive innovation, while mobilizing resources for efficient action. Our aim is to achieve tangible outcomes from visionary collaboration.
We’re tackling today’s biggest health challenges, ultimately, to save lives
We inspire and fund projects that aim to reduce health risks, avert pandemics, eradicate diseases and create stronger health systems. We focus on research-driven initiatives with the potential to give people greater opportunities to live healthier.
We believe that through what we can achieve together, we can shape the future
Global health needs us all-donors, scientists, experts, implementing partners, advocates, and more, from every country, to work as one. The challenge of keeping the world safe, promoting health and protecting the vulnerable cannot be overcome by any single organization, group or individual. By working together, we can change the lives of future generations.
