The Centre on Global Health Security seeks support from organizations which recognize the importance of independent and rigorously objective policy-focused research which will further understanding of key global health challenges and how they manifest themselves as foreign policy and international affairs problems.

The programme funds its activities through a combination of project grants from international organizations, government departments and private foundations; event sponsorship; fellowship support; and discretionary donations from corporate sponsors.

The Centre on Global Health Security does not seek or accept funding for its projects, research, events, or consultants' work from tobacco companies and other entities that manufacture, market or advocate the use of tobacco products. The Centre recognizes the extensive body of scientific evidence that points to tobacco being harmful to human health and to it leading to more than 5 million deaths annually. The UN's view that 'the interests of the tobacco industry and of public health are directly opposed' is central to our work.

All research programmes and staff adhere to the Chatham House Principles for Independent Research and Convening.  For further information on Chatham House’s overall funding, please visit the Our Funding pages.
