Vital Strategies Global Grants Program

The Initiative, supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Government of Australia, is providing technical assistance to low- and middle-income countries worldwide to improve public health data systems. The Initiative focuses on five areas: civil registration and vital statistics; data use for policymaking; non-communicable disease risk factor surveys, COVID-19 response and development of Cancer Registries. Collaborating institutions in the Initiative are: Vital Strategies, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and CDC Foundation, Global Health Advocacy Incubator, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the University of Melbourne, and the World Health Organization.

The Global Grants Program (GGP) supports focused, results-oriented projects that improve public health data in the priority areas of the Data for Health Initiative so that governments are equipped with the tools and systems to collect and use data effectively. Please see pages six and seven for a list of the priority areas we fund.
