At MSD we have a long history of working with and supporting patient organisations and healthcare organisations to enable people to make informed choices about their health. It’s one of the most important things we do – and we’re proud of it.

Find out more about our annual Grants Programme and our current Donations below:

2023 MSD Grants Programme

MSD’s 2023 Grants Programme was established to support projects which address health inequalities, support the elimination of public health threats and deliver improvements in patient outcomes and experience in the UK, in the HIV, cancer and vaccines therapy areas.

Throughout February and March 2023, the programme welcomed applications from Healthcare Organisations. From June to August 2023, the programme invited applications from Patient Organisations.

We received a competitive total of 87 applications from Healthcare and Patient Organisations over the course of both 2023 grants rounds. After a robust grants review process, 8 Healthcare organisations and 11 Patient Organisations were successful in securing funding. When we're reviewing grants applications, we look for those that will have the biggest impact for the patients who need the most support.

In the future, the MSD Grants programme will be available for charities, patient organisations, and healthcare organisations looking to support their communities.

We believe that policy researchers play a critical role – through their research work, educational activity and public outreach – in informing valuable policy dialogues based on evidence. Through this Independent Oncology Policy Grant Programme, MSD seeks to enable institutions to enhance their capacities in research, teaching and dissemination. Beyond supporting independent research, the Programme will provide an international forum for researchers to share ideas on emerging cancer policy issues and identify new areas for policy study.
