I love talking about toilets. @NatGeo recently wrote about two that I think could change the world.
I’m excited to see such incredible leadership from @EmmanuelMacron and the people of France towards @GlobalFund. If more countries #StepUpTheFight against AIDS, TB, and malaria, we can save 16 million lives.…
I learned what’s possible in agriculture from studying a remarkable scientist named Norman Borlaug. If you’re curious about Borlaug and his breakthroughs, I recommend this article and a book called “The Man Who Fed the World.”
If you have the willingness to learn about a problem and the talent to help solve it, you can make a remarkable difference in the world. Just ask former NASA engineer William Wu:
I encourage software developers, inventors, and scientists to consider how they can use their skills to fight inequity.
When @goodreads asked me to share my top summer reading recommendations, it was hard to narrow down the list.…
Fighting disease is like fighting fire. It’s not enough to put out most of it — you have to get it all. @Rotary’s generous pledge to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative will help us extinguish this terrible disease for good.…
The fight against malaria is one of the greatest success stories in global health — but progress has slowed in recent years. To regain momentum, we must work together to combat drug and insecticide resistance.
I was moved by this story: Bob’s daughter has Down syndrome, which puts her at a higher risk for dementia. Motivated by her condition and his love of science, he volunteered for an #Alzheimers clinical trial.
Our foundation’s Day of Caring is one of my dad’s favorite days of the year. I know he can’t wait to hear what our employees learn from our partners this year.
I’m always amazed by the disconnect between what we see in the news and the reality of the world around us. As my late friend Hans Rosling would say, we must fight the fear instinct that distorts our perspective:
Thank you for being a friend, Warren: #BestFriendsDay
I’m thrilled about the elimination of malaria from Algeria and Argentina. This news gives me hope that we’ll one day get rid of the disease forever.
David Letterman’s newest season of #MyNextGuest has a lot of fascinating guests, but there’s one clear standout for me. Check out @melindagates's terrific interview on @netflix:
Patience: it's a valuable skill for investing and for training new employees at Dairy Queen.
Warren and I recently picked up a @DairyQueen shift. I think I may have been a quicker study in the Blizzard department, but watch the video below and judge for yourself:
A powerful call to action from @angienguku on the eve of #WD2019. @melindagates and I are impatient for every mother to have access to high-quality maternal care.
If you’re working on digital biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, I encourage you to apply for the next round of funding on the Diagnostics Accelerator website:
Congratulations to the first round of award recipients from @TheADDF’s Diagnostics Accelerator. Your ideas are getting us closer to a reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use diagnostic for Alzheimer’s disease.…
Identifying candidates for clinical trials more quickly is essential in the fight against Alzheimer’s. That’s why I’m excited about reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use diagnostic tools like blood tests.
I recently sat down with one of my favorite authors, Jared Diamond. His perspective on political polarization really caught my attention:
Breakthrough Energy Ventures – Europe will be a catalyst for innovative solutions to fight climate change. We have the resources to make a meaningful difference and the flexibility to move quickly. That’s a rare and powerful combination.…
We need the collective effort of governments, individuals, and the private sector to tackle climate change. I’m excited about Canada’s new partnership with @btenergy. #CEMMI2019…
I can’t recommend these books highly enough:
Last year I recommended “Bad Blood,” which is about the rise and fall of Theranos. This year I’m recommending “Nine Pints,” another book about blood that you won’t want to put down.
Congratulations @narendramodi on a remarkable win in #IndianElections2019. Your continued commitment to improve health, nutrition, and development will significantly improve lives of many. @BJP4India
I’m a big fan of everything Jared Diamond has written, and his latest book, “Upheaval,” is no exception. You can download a free chapter here:
This #RedNoseDay, I’m swapping out my usual summer books for something a little different. Learn how you can help end child poverty, one red nose at a time:
Whether you’re a political leader or just an armchair historian, you’ll learn a lot from @BeschlossDC's book “Presidents of War.”
This book will take you on a trip you’ll never forget:
Looking for a summer read? You can’t go wrong with one of these great books:
This is great news: wind and solar power generation is expanding at record rates, allowing more people to get their electricity from renewable sources than ever before. Here’s how we can move even faster towards a zero-carbon future:
Together, we can achieve what @Rotary first envisioned: a world where no child will be struck with polio ever again. This weekend, I was honored to thank @RotaryRassin and other Rotarians in person for their dedication to the fight against polio.
Nearly every job created since the last recession has gone to someone with a post-high school education. But which degrees and programs provide the greatest value? Our foundation is launching a new commission to find out:
A college degree is the surest path to a healthy, rewarding life and career. But which degrees and programs provide the greatest value to students? Our foundation CEO @SueDHellmann is co-chairing a new commission to get that data into the hands of more families.…
Everyone at the @gatesfoundation looks forward to days when our trustee Warren is on campus. @melindagates and I couldn’t ask for a better champion for our employees, partners, and grantees.
It is surprisingly hard to store renewable energy. Here are three startups I’m excited about that are tackling this challenge:
It’s easy to be overwhelmed by climate change and what to do about it. I recently wrote about why I’m optimistic we can prevent the worst from happening:
A fascinating discussion with computer scientist @drfeifei, historian @harari_yuval, and journalist @nxthompson on the future of AI.
My mom was one of the most generous people I’ve ever known. If I grew up #WithoutMom, I wouldn’t be the man I am today. Join the fight against preventable maternal deaths so that no child grows up without a mother.
All my life I’ve been surrounded by remarkable women. And I was moved when Melinda decided to write about two of them — my mother and my grandmother — in her new book, The #MomentofLift. Happy #MotherDay to all the amazing mothers out there!
This fascinating #dataviz looks at how the global population pyramid is changing. With the right investments in health and education, young people at the bottom of the pyramid will drive tremendous growth and innovation.
I was touched when Melinda asked me to introduce her at her #MomentofLift book tour stop in Seattle tonight. I wanted to do right by her but wasn’t sure what the best approach was -- so I turned to someone with some expertise in this area…
2018 National Teacher of the Year @MandyRheaWrites told me about the remarkable resilience of her students. I was inspired by their stories and Mandy’s ability to connect with them: #ThankATeacher
I really enjoyed spending time with 2017 WA State Teacher of the Year @farmtableteach. She showed me a neat lesson that can be used to teach science and engineering to students as young as 5 years old: #ThankATeacher
For Teacher Appreciation Week, I’ll be highlighting some of the most impactful lessons I’ve learned from educators in my home state. 2019 WA State Teacher of the Year @_MrHand showed me how he could build lesson plans that resonate with every student. #ThankATeacher
No one has more insight than teachers into what makes a classroom tick, or how to reach & inspire a struggling student. Happy #TeacherAppreciationDay, Teachers! Thank you for your unwavering belief in every student.🙌🏿🙌🏾🙌🏽 Share how a teacher has shaped your#ThankATeachere7t2kHc

I’ve learned a lot from the career of this real-life Sherlock Holmes:
Melinda and I love meeting with people who are trying to change the world. Here are four of the people who inspired Melinda when she set out to write her new book, The #MomentofLift.
What does a “dirt detective” do for a living? I’m eager to watch this talk from soil scientist Asmeret Asefaw Berhe about how we can use soil to fight climate change. @TEDTalks
