Open Philanthopy donations made

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2023. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Intended use of funds: Grant "to support a safety and immunogenicity trial in adults in Nigeria of fractional doses of the AstraZeneca, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The grant page says: "The trial has the potential to indicate that doses of these vaccines that are a quarter or half the size of standard doses promote “non-inferior” immune responses. If non-inferiority can be established, this could allow many people to be vaccinated against COVID-19 sooner despite limited supplies, reducing deaths and other harms from the pandemic."

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): The grant is made two years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and about a year after the initial release of the vaccines being tested. The rise of variants such as delta and omicron in the past year has led to interest in booster doses, meaning that ongoing supply of the vaccine may be needed.

Other notes: Affected countries: Nigeria.
