The odds of dying of AIDS in South Africa are less than half what they were at the peak. That progress wouldn’t have been possible without the @GlobalFund and other global health organizations. Even more progress is possible if we keep up the fight: b-gat.es/35ANIFj
I’m impressed by the international cooperation that made this year’s @GlobalFund Replenishment round possible. The world has committed more than ever before. Our foundation is proud to commit $700 million to over the next 3 years. #StepUptheFightb-gat.es/2M8Uhr5
In Afghanistan, one of the last countries with polio, vaccine acceptance rates have reached 98% thanks to the tireless work of female health workers. Their increased involvement and passion is why polio eradication is within reach in Afghanistan. b-gat.es/2VtOoYD
If all countries in the world had the same concentration of researchers as wealthy ones, there would be 3x as many researchers. That’s mind-blowing. We all lose out when talent isn’t connected with opportunity. @OurWorldInDatab-gat.es/2pZr7lx
I’m lucky to have known Stephen Hawking — and he was as exceptional in person as you imagined he was. As remarkable as his contributions to physics were, his biggest accomplishment was inspiring the world to believe in the magic of science and research. b-gat.es/2IvOcmq
Melinda's work on behalf of women and girls around the world inspires me every day. She's committing $1 billion over the next ten years to increasing women's power and influence in the United States. Because #EqualityCantWait. b-gat.es/2mZH6Pt
Most people know @AlikoDangote as Africa’s wealthiest man, but I know him as one of our foundation’s most impactful partners in improving health. Melinda and I are lucky to count him as a partner (and friend!) in our work. b-gat.es/2ok7NOU
More and more children are living to see their 5th birthdays. That’s because the world has made incredible progress in reducing child mortality. But progress has been uneven. We have more work to do to close the gaps across countries and within them. b-gat.es/2n7YJfW
Sanitation is a difficult issue to take on because there are no easy solutions. Tonight we recognized the progress India has made on this issue through its Swachh Bharat program, under the leadership of @narendramodi. b-gat.es/2lyusWH
I had the privilege of meeting @DrElvisEze at last year’s Malaria Summit in London, and I was struck by his optimism about the fight against malaria. I think you’ll be inspired by his story. b-gat.es/2mXeBS4
I’m excited to see world leaders and climate advocates coming together to make progress at the UNGA #ClimateAction Summit. Working together we can prevent the worst effects of climate change. twitter.com/antonioguterre…
I am hopeful that we can substantially alter the course of Alzheimer’s disease. This World Alzheimer’s Day, join me in supporting Alzheimer’s research by watching and sharing @AlzResearchUK’s #SharetheOrange video with @SamuelLJackson.
Adapting to climate change requires support from governments and businesses to ensure those most at risk have the opportunity to thrive. A new report from @GCAdaptation lays out steps we can take to address this urgent issue. b-gat.es/31Eb6iK
Melinda and I started out ahead. But hundreds of millions of people around the world have to overcome hurdle after hurdle to be successful. Read about how advocates are working to even the odds for everyone: b-gat.es/308H5dp
Health and education are improving everywhere in the world. But the gap between countries’ progress can be enormous. Our foundation’s 2019 Goalkeepers report examines two of the biggest factors responsible for this inequality: b-gat.es/308cLjg
Today, it’s difficult for researchers to diagnose #Alzheimers patients early enough to intervene. A reliable, easy and accurate diagnostic would be a game changer, and artificial intelligence could be the answer. b-gat.es/2ZJjsYO
Here’s a remarkable statistic: Nearly 1.1 billion fewer people are living in extreme poverty today than in 1990. But over 700 million still live on less than $2 a day. Six of them share their stories, their challenges, and their dreams for better lives. b-gat.es/2ULBKE1
The fact that a quarter of the kids born on the planet don’t get the right food to develop is a mind-blowing tragedy.
Our growing understanding of the microbiome will make this problem #solvable: b-gat.es/32sXEOH
Climate change is one of the toughest challenges facing the world. But don’t despair…
Scientists and entrepreneurs are working on some innovative solutions. Here are four that I’m excited about: b-gat.es/2zJTXaY
Tuberculosis is still the leading infectious cause of death worldwide. To #EndTB, we need to continue to develop safer and simpler solutions. The FDA’s approval of a new treatment is a promising step in the right direction. b-gat.es/2zt4siW
Whenever I hear an idea for what we can do to keep global warming in check, I always ask this question: “What’s your plan for steel?”
I know it sounds like an odd thing to say, but it opens the door to a very important subject. b-gat.es/2ZlhMFj
Canada’s $930 million commitment to the @GlobalFund is a big step towards saving millions of lives. Their pledge, and the commitments of other countries, are helping to #StepUpTheFight against AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. b-gat.es/2ZrAPcB
Four billion people are at risk from mosquito-borne diseases. We can get that number down to zero if we invest in new tools — like a set of techniques for genetically modifying mosquitoes — to complement the ones we already have. b-gat.es/2H7HMsG
Melinda and I are big fans of @DonorsChoose, and we were thrilled to learn that @wkamaubell is, too. Today, when you support teachers as they prepare to go back to school, your donation will get a 50% boost from our foundation: b-gat.es/31HdDbP
When teachers have the right tools, there’s no telling where it will take them. Today, when you give to @DonorsChoose, @gatesfoundation will boost your donation by 50%. I hope you’ll join us in supporting teachers. b-gat.es/2H2zGBU
Being poor isn’t cheap. It’s hundreds of times more expensive to use charging stations than it is to charge a phone at home. That’s just one of the hidden costs of unreliable electricity: b-gat.es/2GXdWqO
