Financing

Current activities related to financing fall under the purview of the Consultative Expert Working Group on Research and Development: Financing and Coordination (CEWG). WHO Member States have requested the establishment of this working group in response to a concern that insufficient resources were being devoted globally to research and development (R&D) to address treatments for diseases that principally affect developing countries.

The CEWG is mandated to examine R&D financing and coordination proposals for diseases that principally affect developing countries.
