Wellcome is a global charitable foundation, both politically and financially independent. It supports scientists and researchers, takes on big problems, fuels imaginations, and sparks debate.

“It is critical that countries have necessary resources and expertise to protect their populations to avoid the devastating social, economic and health impacts of epidemics. Through research and development, funding scientists, founding initiatives such as the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, and supporting the World Health Organization R & D Blueprint, Wellcome contributes to a world that is better prepared to address infectious diseases. We are proud to have joined the JEE Alliance and welcome the collective commitment to support countries to identify and address the gaps in their preparedness programmes for infectious disease.”

Ed Whiting, Director of Policy and Chief of Staff

The JEE Alliance is happy to welcome Wellcome to join the network of countries and organizations willing to collaborate for global health security.
