Apply for a Grant 

Gilead welcomes funding requests for innovative, high-impact projects as well as operating grants that relate to at least one of five core therapeutic areas: HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, haematology and oncology, inflammation and respiratory diseases, and invasive fungal disease. We consider a number of factors when reviewing grants, but it is most important for applications to demonstrate a strong commitment to – and capacity for – delivering the specific services your funded grant would support.


Gilead will consider grant requests, whether focussed on community/patient or medical/scientific programmes, which focus on the four pillars outlined below:


Providing Access

Gilead believes medicines should be accessible to all people who need them, regardless of where they live or what resources they have. Political, social and geographical barriers prevent patients around the world from accessing the best possible care, so we work with partners and grantees to help overcome these barriers.


Reducing Disparities

People should have access to the same healthcare, regardless of their background. At Gilead, we fund projects that support underserved communities that have systematically experienced greater social or economic obstacles to health.


Advancing Medical Education

Gilead works to make testing and treatment more widely available and knows education is key to effective disease prevention and long-term disease management. Gilead helps community organisations by supporting disease awareness programmes for patients and expanding knowledge and skills for healthcare professionals.


Supporting Local Communities

With employees working in over 30 countries around the world, Gilead understands how important it is for people of all backgrounds to live in vibrant local communities. Gilead funds initiatives that promote the well-being and betterment of the local neighbourhoods and cities in which we live and work.
