- To support research on malaria prevention.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $700,000 over three years to the ANTI-VeC Network, via the University of Glasgow, to support research on the potential effectiveness of a naturally occurring microsporidian species in preventing the transmission of malaria from mosquitoes to humans. ANTI-VeC plans to regrant this funding to research groups throughout Sub-Saharan Africa to analyze the presence of the microsporidian species in mosquitoes across different seasons and conditions.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's work on scientific research, specifically within its interest in advancing human health and wellbeing.
