The work of Policy Cures Research is underpinned by comprehensive data collection and evidence generation in two primary areas: global health R&D funding and the landscape of global health products and pipeline candidates.
Global health R&D funding data is collected from organisations via the annual G-FINDER survey. This provides an unmatched resource for funders, policy makers, researchers and industry that describes the R&D funding landscape for global health priority areas, showing where funding gaps exist and how each funder’s investments fit into the global picture.
Data on approved products and candidates in the R&D pipeline are collected and updated using publicly available information. This data complements the funding data, to provide similar global health actors with much-needed tools to evaluate and prioritise R&D efforts. It also supports impact assessments for products in use and candidates under development, with a view to accelerating progress and achieving more efficient allocation and mobilisation of funding.
