The G-FINDER survey tracks global public, private, and philanthropic investment into product research and development for neglected diseases. These are diseases that predominantly affect developing countries and for which products are needed but there is insufficient commercial pull to stimulate R&D.
The survey includes R&D of drugs, vaccines, diagnostics, insecticides, microbicides and other pharmaceutical tools, from basic research through to post-registration studies.For more information, please refer to the frequently asked questions.The project is conducted by The George Institute for International Health and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Survey results are published as yearly reports.The results from the first two reports are available here:
G-FINDER 2008. Neglected Disease Research & Development: How much are we really spending?
G-FINDER 2009. Neglected Disease Research & Development: New times, new trends.
