FNIH Pandemic Response Fund - Working together to defeat COVID-19

The FNIH is proudly partnering with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to accelerate development of vaccines and therapies to combat COVID-19, the greatest public health challenge of our time. This massive, complex effort requires a coordinated approach uniting industry, academia, philanthropy and the federal government—working together to achieve what no one entity can do alone.

Donors to the FNIH Pandemic Response Fund are crucial partners in this critical effort. Fully 90% of every dollar given supports programs such as the ACTIV partnership, launched by NIH and the FNIH to battle this global pandemic and lay the foundation for tackling future threats.
