Good health makes life better. We want to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive.

That's why we support thousands of curious, passionate people all over the world to explore great ideas, at every step of the way from discovery to impact.

We also identify priority areas where we can give focused, intensive support when there are real opportunities to transform lives, or we can drive reform to ensure that ideas reach their full potential.

We advance ideas

Supporting ideas has always been central to our approach. We also stimulate ideas and pursue many of our own.

We seize opportunities and drive reform

We choose priority areas where we want to see, lead and be accountable for change. We work in partnerships and set ambitious targets to bring about improvements in these areas.
