The Open Society Foundations, one of the world’s largest backers of public health initiatives, is undergoing a “significant” reorganization that will affect grant decision-making, a shift that has created anxiety among advocacy groups that work on access to medicines.
The changes at the OSF, which was founded by billionaire philanthropist George Soros, are still being finalized, although grants will be handled by different OSF offices, according to a foundation spokesperson. She insisted “it is too early to tell” how advocacy groups will be affected, but maintained the contemplated changes may result in “significantly bigger” discretionary funds for public health programming.
