The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $49,942 to the Center for Global Development to support a project titled “Policymaking during the Ebola Outbreak: Implications for Future Pandemics” led by Jeremy Konyndyk. Open Philanthropy's Program Officer for Biosecurity and Pandemic Preparedness, Jaime Yassif, is particularly interested in the project’s analysis of both the political pressures around travel restrictions that could be a major factor in disease spread during a global catastrophic biological risk event, as well as the role of military response in shaping outcomes.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
