Welcome to the G-FINDER survey

The G-FINDER survey tracks annual investment into R&D for new products and technologies to addres priority global health challenges. This includes basic research and the development of new drugs, vaccines, diagnostics and other tools for global health priorities that disproportionately affect people in low- and middle-income countries, including neglected diseases (NDs), emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) issues.

The survey is conducted by Policy Cures Research and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. For more information, please refer to the frequently asked questions.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are also collecting funding data for COVID-19 basic research and product development. We note that this is unlikely to fall in your 2019 financial year, but in a rapidly changing environment, we are striving to supplement our tracking of publicly announced funding commitments with confirmed disbursement data. Please provide the date of any disbursements you made, and if applicable what candidate or clinical trial it was for, in the notes column of the survey.
