Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R) Versão em português
FAPESP is a member of the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R), a network of 23 research funding organizations in the area of infectious disease preparedness research.
GloPID-R aims to bring together research funders on a global scale to facilitate an effective research response within 48 hours of a significant outbreak of a new or re-emerging infectious disease with pandemic potential.
The network’s specific objectives include planning and investing in research and innovation before an epidemic or health crisis occurs; facilitating the exchange of information; addressing scientific, legal, ethical and financial challenges; implementing a “One Health” approach with close cooperation among human and animal health researchers; connecting infectious disease research networks; and establishing a strategic agenda for research response.
The members of GloPID-R include the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research & Innovation, the African Academy of Sciences, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the US Department of Health & Human Services, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the UK’s Wellcome Trust, the World Health Organization, and Brazil’s Butantan Institute and Oswaldo Cruz Foundation.
