The SCI's major funding partners have been the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, and Geneva Global. Currently we hold a major grant from the Department of Interational Development (DFID). The home of SCI is the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London; and the major operational partners are the Ministries of Health and Education in country.
