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:
We need more approaches to stopping #Alzheimers disease. I’m excited to see this news out of @DZNE_de and @ISD_Research about a promising starting point for the development of new therapeutic strategies.
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. #StepUptheFight
I can’t think of a more fitting tribute to Hans Rosling and his life’s work. Hans was a dear friend to Melinda and me – and inspired us all with his passion, intelligence, and wit.
I’m in Lyon, France for the @GlobalFund’s replenishment – celebrating the most money ever raised for their life-saving work. I’m excited for the day that these diseases are in the history books. #StepUptheFight…
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.
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. @OurWorldInData
Malnutrition is the greatest health inequity in the world. I recently spoke with my friend @AlikoDangote about how we can use iodized salt to help kids gets the nutrients they need:
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.
Here is the story of the day I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and the influence of someone who’s been a critical guide along the way:
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.
I’m delighted that @erna_solberg has re-upped Norway’s commitment to support the work of the @GlobalFund. I welcome her sustained leadership and partnership in the fight against AIDS, TB, and malaria.…
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.
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.
It's really incredible how much time and effort goes into producing a documentary like the new @netflix series I participated in. I shared more about the experience on my blog:
Ending poverty and achieving the SDGs requires a whole-of-government approach. @ImranKhanPTI and @SaniaNishtar have shown leadership in developing a new anti-poverty strategy. #Ehsaas
.@sanchezcastejon’s commitment to the @GlobalFund reflects Spain’s leadership. At a time when more countries are turning inward, Spain is showing that we can’t back away from our commitment to fighting poverty and disease.…
The third annual #Goalkeepers19 event brings together a new generation of changemakers to accelerate progress toward the Global Goals.…

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.
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.
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.…
I’ve always loved playing tennis. Maybe this is why. See more deleted scenes from the @netflix series about my life and read exclusive stories on my blog:
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.
The docuseries about my life and work is out today. I hope you’ll check it out on @netflix — and then read some of the stories that didn’t make the cut on my blog.
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.
The new docuseries that looks at my work is out tomorrow. I hope you check it out on @netflix. I can’t wait to hear what you think:….
As governments invest more in primary health care systems, overall health outcomes improve. Here’s how:
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:
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:
The Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service Award is a well-deserved recognition of @gavi's life-saving work. Congratulations to all of the winners:
Congratulations @BradSmi and @CarolAnnBrowne! Your insights have never been more relevant, and I am glad others will have the chance to benefit from them too.…
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.
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.
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:
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:
Manufacturing steel is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Boston Metal is working to change this, and I’m excited about their approach:
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.
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.
Germany, Italy, and the European Commission have demonstrated great leadership with their commitments to the @GlobalFund. Thank you @BMZ_Bund, @GiuseppeConteIT and @EU_Commission. Your pledges will help protect the world’s most vulnerable from #AIDS, #TB, and #malaria.…
When I think about the world I want for my children, I know that #EqualityCantWait. When women and men can reach their full potential, everyone benefits:
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.
If we want to give our kids the best chance possible to succeed after high school, we need more teachers like @_MrHand:
Today marks three years since Nigeria's last wild poliovirus case. This progress wouldn’t have been possible without the bravery of the young women who volunteer as polio vaccinators.
Tomorrow is #WorldMosquitoDay, when we recognize all of our partners and grantees who are fighting against the world’s deadliest animal and the diseases it spreads:
I never really learned how to cook. I’m finally learning my way around the kitchen, though, thanks to Robert Hand:
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.
I learned a lot from Washington State Teacher of the Year @_MrHand about creating a classroom where kids want to be (and he taught me how to make BBQ chicken).
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:
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.
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:
