- To support the development and launch of the Global Health Security Index.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $3,556,773 over two years to the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) to create a Global Health Security Index in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the Economist Intelligence Unit. NTI plans to use these funds to support the development of an index of national-level biosecurity and pandemic preparedness capacity in at least 194 countries. The project is modeled on NTI’s analogous Nuclear Materials Security Index.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's focus on biosecurity and pandemic preparedness, and is a renewal of an earlier grant that supported the development of an Index framework and the collection of data from four countries.
