Science holds promise to ending the world’s deadliest diseases. But to deliver on that promise, we need forward-looking ways of developing new health technologies—and we need the world’s leading bilateral funder of global health, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), to lead the charge.

The Supporting Innovative Global Health Technologies Fund—or SIGHT Fund—is a proposal for a new flexible, catalytic fund to be housed at USAID that would infuse new funding into R&D efforts to close the biggest gaps in our global health toolkit and save more lives more quickly. Recently, a bill known as the SIGHT Act, which would lay the foundation for the creation of the fund, was introduced in the US Congress.
