BARDA Ventures, the venture arm of HHS’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), is spearheading the initiative and plans to provide GHIC with a minimum of $50 million over five years with potential for up to $500 million over 10 years.

With BARDA Ventures funding, GHIC plans to collaborate with companies from around the world to source promising products with the potential to strengthen health security and generate financial returns, the organizations said.
