The Global Forum for Health Research was established as an independent international foundation in Switzerland in 1998.

Its origins lay in the recognition of three key facts:

1. Improving health is not only an outcome
of development but also a prerequisite
for development.
2. Improving health requires the effective
application of existing research. It
also, crucially, requires research aimed
at creating new knowledge and new
technologies.
3. Few of the world’s resources for health
research are directed to solving the
health problems of developing countries.
