The Opportunity

While millions of lives have been saved over the last decade through the coordinated efforts of the international community, the scourges of infections diseases such as AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria remain as threats to public health, particularly in Africa. And the burden of noncommunicable diseases such as cancer and diabetes continues to grow, especially in developing countries. The world is at a critical stage – it is necessary to accelerate efforts to combat these diseases before they find new forms that are even more complex and expensive to defeat.

The Parker Foundation is dedicated to funding research, science and technology to prevent the global spread of infectious diseases, such as malaria, and to find ways of halting the spread of all types of disease.
