Grand Challenges in Global Health Announced

  • Jan 23, 2003

The Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative is modeled after the grand challenges formulated more than 100 years ago by mathematician David Hilbert. His list of important unsolved problems has encouraged innovation in mathematics research ever since.

When launched, Grand Challenges in Global Health committed $481.6 million for projects focusing on 14 major global health challenges. The aim was to engage creative minds across scientific disciplines to work on solutions that could lead to breakthrough advances for those in the developing world.
