Save to My Resources

Citing the importance of targeting critical resources to prevent and mitigate future biothreats, NTI joined governments and organizations from around the world for the 2nd Global COVID-19 Summit on May 12, 2022. As part of its participation, NTI committed to provide $35,000 to the pandemic preparedness and global health security financial intermediary fund once it is established and committed to using the Global Health Security Index as a tool to inform prioritization—so resources can be allocated to countries most in need and to address the most significant health security gaps. The Summit, co-hosted by the United States, Belize, Germany, Indonesia, and Senegal, garnered more than $3 billion new financial commitments to accelerate collective efforts to build health security for future pandemics and other health crises.

NTI’s full commitment (listed with all Summit Commitments here):

  • Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) commits to support the Financial Intermediary Fund by using the Global Health Security Index as a tool to inform pandemic preparedness needs—so resources can be allocated to countries most in need and to address the most significant gaps. NTI also commits to contribute $35,000 to the Fund once established—reflecting our view that catalytic funding is needed to guard against current and future biological threats.
