The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $357,543 to Charity Science Health to support its Short Message Service (SMS) immunization reminder program in India. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work to support GiveWell Incubation Grants, which support the development of potential future top charities and improve the quality of GiveWell's recommendations.
Charity Science Health (previously Charity Science: Health) was created by members of the effective altruism community with the goal of creating a potential future GiveWell top charity. It previously received a $200,000 GiveWell Incubation Grant to support its first year of activities. This new grant is intended to cover the total costs for its second year of activities, primarily related to the further development of its program to send SMS immunization reminders to caregivers of infants aged 0-1 in India.
