Gilead Canada Grants Program
Gilead welcomes funding requests for innovative, high-impact projects that relate to at least one of the following core therapeutic areas:
- Liver disease
- Solid Tumors
We consider several factors when reviewing grant requests, but it is most important for applications to demonstrate a strong commitment to — and capacity for — delivering the specific outcomes the funded grant would support.
To help advance Canada’s efforts of reaching the World Health Organization’s HCV elimination goals by 2030, Gilead supports screening and linkage-to-care (SLTC) projects through its grants program with the objective of addressing gaps and re-igniting SLTC initiatives that help patients in priority settings and populations.
Specific areas of interest for HCV projects include:
- Implementation or improvement of models that facilitate linkage to and retention in care (including new testing approaches or settings)
- Interventions or activities that simplify and strengthen the patient journey to improve the care cascade
We provide in three categories:
- Patient community support
- Medical and scientific support
- Charitable organizations
Grant applications are accepted throughout the year.

Medical & Scientific Support
Gilead awards funding to advance medical and scientific education programs that expand the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals.
