The G-FINDER survey, now in its eighth year, is the world’s most comprehensive report on public, philanthropic and industry funding for R&D for neglected diseases like malaria, TB, HIV, pneumonia, sleeping sickness and helminth infections.

The report covers 35 diseases and 142 product areas, including drugs, vaccines, diagnostics, microbicides and vector control products. This year’s G-FINDER report has been expanded to include Ebola, providing the first clear picture of how much was invested in Ebola R&D globally in 2014.

The G-FINDER survey is conducted by the independent research group Policy Cures and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. For more information regarding G-FINDER and Policy Cures, visit www.policycures.org or contact info@policycures.org.
