Encompassing more than 60 grants, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Global Health Initiative (GHI) aims to expand access to health services, strengthen quality of care for all, and empower providers on the front lines. The Initiative, whose budget exceeds one (1) billion U.S. dollars, is carried out with exclusive support from SNF and based on wide-ranging collaborations in Greece and worldwide.
The grantmaking activity of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) extends all across Greece and around the world. But the Greek region of Laconia holds a special connection with SNF as the ancestral homeland of SNF’s Founder, Stavros S. Niarchos.
