It's great to see Microsoft's leadership in this area. Avoiding the worst effects of climate change will require innovation and investment to get us to net zero carbon emissions across all sectors of the economy.…
These global health heroes have helped Bangladesh become a model for other countries for how to respond to infectious disease outbreaks:
It’s encouraging to see these results. Typhoid is especially deadly for young children, and a vaccine like this has the potential to save millions of lives.
Thanks to the work of this father–daughter dynamic duo, Bangladesh is moving toward a future of fewer disease outbreaks and more children reaching their fifth birthday.
Solving the world’s toughest challenges—like fighting the worst impacts of climate change—requires lots of new ideas and talented people working across many fields. I’m glad to see this effort to support this important work.…
Progress isn’t always easy to see. These charts show some of the ways that the world is getting better.
America’s tax system will be top of mind for many in 2020. Here’s what I really think.
If your New Year’s resolution is to be healthier in 2020, this book is a good place to start.
I’m glad @beautiful__news is highlighting some of the amazing things happening in the world.
Sir Fazle was a humanitarian who helped us learn about development work: Building an efficient organization while never forgetting who you were doing it for. We were saddened to hear of his passing and will forever draw inspiration from his work, as will the rest of the world.

Vaclav Smil is one of my favorite thinkers, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on his new book about the growth of *everything*.
What’s next for our foundation? I’m particularly excited about what the next year could mean for one of the best buys in global health: vaccines.
I’ve read a lot of books about history over the years, and These Truths by Jill Lepore is the most honest and unflinching account of the American story I’ve ever seen. It’s also one of the most beautifully written.
Check out my end of year books list (plus a bonus recommendation) on @Likewise.
December is a great time to take stock of everything you’ve done over the last twelve months—including all of the books you’ve read. I found these books to be really clever and engaging. I hope you them find as intriguing as I did:
Back in my early Microsoft days, I routinely pulled all-nighters when we had to deliver a piece of software. I even stayed up two nights in a row on occasion–I don’t recommend that. This book taught me a lot about the importance of a better night's sleep.
This new treatment is a gamechanger for millions of people living with HIV in South Africa. I’m optimistic that it could help #EndAIDS around the world.
I was deeply moved by Tayari Jones’s story of a married couple whose lives get torn apart by an incident of injustice. The book is so well-written that you’ll find yourself sucked into it despite the heavy subject matter.
Here are two amazing statistics: primary health care interventions could save 60 million lives in low-and middle-income countries and increase average life expectancy by 3.7 years by 2030: #HealthForAll
Diane Tavenner had a simple but very ambitious goal: “We wanted to teach kids not just what they needed to get into college, but what they needed to live a good life.” You can read an excerpt from her wonderful new book on my blog.
I’ve read a lot of great books this year. Here are some I think you’ll enjoy reading over the holidays.
I'm a big fan of @SiliconHBO and was excited when they asked me to appear in the series finale tonight. #AlwaysBlue
Thank you, Sue, for your extraordinary leadership. Melinda and I are grateful for the opportunity we’ve had to learn with and from you over the past five-and-a-half years, and we wish you and your family the best.…
I really enjoyed sitting down with @reidhoffman to talk about the role great cofounders and partners have played in my career, like Paul Allen at Microsoft and @melindagates at the Gates Foundation. You can listen to our conversation here:
Technology has made it faster and easier than ever before for people everywhere to give. I’m inspired by how many people from all over the world participate in #GivingTuesday.
I was impressed to see the tremendous impact @gestamp’s apprenticeship program is having on students and their community:
This #WorldAIDSDay, I’m excited about breakthroughs in treating and preventing HIV thanks to organizations like the @GlobalFund.
The world has made incredible strides toward ending the AIDS epidemic over the last twenty years, and I’m optimistic that more progress is on the way. Explore the data: #WorldAIDSDay
At @gestamp, an auto parts maker in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I saw how the factory is putting high school students on a path to opportunity:
Dr. LeAndrea Ware is one of the most energetic school leaders I’ve ever met. Her positivity is infectious. It’s no wonder she was recently named the Tennessee principal of the year:
We’re getting closer to having a blood test for Alzheimer’s – which could help doctors detect and diagnose the disease earlier:
US education may be the hardest issue our foundation works on. A recent visit to The Howard School in Chattanooga, Tennessee reminded me why it’s also one of the most inspiring.
You could find wild poliovirus in 125 countries in 1988. Today, it exists in just two. And more than 18 million people are walking today who would otherwise have been paralyzed by polio. Here’s why we aren’t done yet:
The incredible, diverse global partnership that halted wild polio’s spread in Nigeria 3 years ago makes me optimistic we’ll #EndPolio worldwide.
Some of our most vital partners in the fight to #EndPolio are philanthropies like @alwaleed_philan, @BloombergDotOrg, Tahir Foundation, Dalio Philanthropies & Ningxia Yanbao Charity Foundation. Their support has helped deliver vaccines and protect millions from polio paralysis.
Even a single child paralyzed by polio is one too many, but I’m optimistic that we will eradicate the disease thanks to the GPEI’s persistence and creativity.
In Abu Dhabi this week, the world committed $2.6B to #EndPolio. Thank you @MohamedBinZayed for your leadership in helping push this terrible disease to the brink of eradication.
The more I’ve learned about Alzheimer’s disease, the more I’ve come to admire the volunteers who participate in clinical trials, and their caregivers too. Here’s a way you can help fight Alzheimer’s:
Better tools for collecting and sharing data will help community health workers protect families in the poorest parts of the world.
Expanding the diversity of therapies in the pipeline and more efficiently recruiting patients for clinical trials will increase our odds of discovering a breakthrough. I’m hopeful it will lead to an intervention that reduces the impact of Alzheimer’s.…
One of the many awful things about watching someone you love struggle with Alzheimer’s is the feeling of helplessness. You keep thinking that there must be something more you can do. Here's one option.
We have cut the number of child deaths in half over the last 20 years. New tools like these precision maps from @IHME_UW will help us cut child mortality in half again by 2030.
Buildings are one of the five areas where we need a lot of innovation if we’re going to avoid a climate disaster. I wrote about one company with a particularly clever approach.
A lot of work remains, but it’s exciting to see positive data on a drug candidate that may alter the course of Alzheimer’s disease.
I always like to try out a new TV show or two when I’m on the road. What should I watch next? I set up an Ask on @Likewise to collect your recommendations.
"This is a solvable problem." @CarbonCure (which I’ve helped fund through @btenergy Ventures) has developed an innovative way to reduce cement's carbon footprint:
One of the best parts of my job is getting to work with some of the world’s most brilliant minds on seemingly intractable problems. Here’s how we’re trying to tackle one of the defining technical challenges of our time.
This is one of the most important topics in medicine today: how can we make data more readily available for researchers to look for patterns and identify new pathways for treatment.
The world has made incredible progress toward the goal to #endpolio thanks to partners like @MohamedBinZayed and the UAE.…
Melinda and I feel pressure to make every dollar and every day count, which is why we say no to a lot more opportunities than we say yes to. Working with partners around the world to #EndPolio has been a fight worth every dollar.
