Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases

FAPESP is a member of the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD), a consortium of public health research funding agencies. Headquartered in London, GACD coordinates and supports activities that address the prevention and treatment of chronic non-communicable diseases on a global scale.

These conditions account for 60% of deaths worldwide, according to GACD, which focuses on the needs of low- and middle-income countries, as well as vulnerable populations of more developed countries.

The GACD’s members include Australia’s National Health & Medical Research Council, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, the UK’s Medical Research Council, the Japan Agency for Medical Research & Development, the European Commission’s Health Directorate at the Research & Innovation DG, and the US National Institutes of Health.
