In order to solve our world’s sanitation crisis, we need smarter toilets that don’t rely on sewage systems and prevent the spread of diseases. #WorldToiletDay
Collaboration and more open access to data have made seemingly impossible health breakthroughs a reality, like COVID-19 vaccines. @AlzData is putting the power of data behind one of our most critical health challenges.…
From decreasing maternal mortality to lowering rates of vaccine-preventable diseases, @WendoAszed is a true hero in her community.
Africa has always been at the heart of our foundation’s mission. Today, we are announcing our commitment of $7 billion over the next 4 years for the development of more breakthrough innovations in health and agriculture across the continent.
Many people don’t know that Mike was a champion for and leader on PEPFAR – the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief – which has saved millions of lives. It’s one of the best things this country has ever done. It will be a lasting part of his legacy.
I’m very sad to hear about Michael Gerson’s passing. We spoke many times over the years, especially about global health, and when I started talking about pandemic prevention back in 2015, he was one of the first journalists I wanted to talk to. is excited to host Bill Gates in an exclusive conversation for the virtual audience next Thursday, November 17, 2022, to discuss food security and climate change in #Africa. Don't miss:… #Foodsecurity

I’m in Kenya this week to learn from researchers, innovators, students, and leaders about what’s working, what’s not, and how the foundation can better support progress in Kenya and across the continent.
Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here in Kenya this week to see how much progress has been made.…
I believe everyone has a role to play in addressing climate change. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an inventor, or consumer, we can all help avoid a climate disaster.
When it comes to alleviating the impacts of #climatechange on smallholder farmers, the goal should not simply be giving more food aid. It should be to ensure no aid is needed in the first place. #COP27
Those of us who have done the most to cause this problem should help the rest of the world survive it. We owe them that much.
More than 670,000 children die from pneumonia every year. Inventprise is working to change that. #WorldPneumoniaDay
While the last steps are proving to be the toughest, I’m optimistic we will eradicate polio. I recently visited @KU_Leuven’s Rega Institute where they’re testing preventative medicine – an important step toward a polio-free world.
The climate crisis is already devastating communities. More funding is necessary to ensure agricultural and technological innovations are widely available to the most vulnerable, helping them adapt to climate change, save lives, and increase economic opportunity.…
I have never met anyone who was more passionate about reducing the world’s worst inequities in health than Paul Farmer. I continue to learn from my dear friend’s life and legacy today.
More than 1B people globally still suffer from #NTDs, many caused by parasites. I got a firsthand look at these creepy crawlies at the Parasitic Museum in Tokyo. The more we understand them, the better we can address the diseases they cause.
This year's #BESummit2022 brought together investors, policymakers, and innovators to tackle one of the world’s toughest problems: climate change.
Math shouldn’t be a gatekeeper, limiting a student’s dreams. It should be a gateway, helping students realize them.
TerraPower, the next-gen nuclear company I founded, just agreed with PacifiCorp to study the feasibility of building five Natrium reactors for its customers.
I had a great meeting with @starkwatzinger to discuss the importance of funding research to address some of the future challenges we face in global health.…
Thank you, Prime Minister @Xavier_Bettel for your continued commitment and support.…
I am thrilled to see the existing partnership between @EIB and @Breakthrough strengthen with the signing of this MOU today. Global collaboration like this has the power to bring the clean energy solutions we need to communities around the world.…
I’m deeply grateful for the efforts of partners like President @MohamedBinZayed who have helped reduce the global polio burden by 99.9% and prevented an estimated 20 million children from being paralyzed. Together, we can overcome the last hurdles and achieve a polio-free world.…
Testing for viruses with a breathalyzer? It’s possible. Pretty incredible to see the innovative work happening at @imec_int.
Thank you, Prime Minister @alexanderdecroo, for hosting this year’s #GrandChallenges meeting. Your support in facilitating this gathering of global leaders will help ensure a healthier and more secure world.
Thanks to the @EU_Commission’s @ratsosi for a great discussion about our joint efforts to advance the fight against infectious diseases.
One amazing program supported by the EU and @gatesfoundation together is the African Medicines Agency, a new African Union institution to strengthen regulatory capacity and health security across the continent.
Twenty years ago, I thought of #GrandChallenges as a Gates Foundation initiative. Because of all of the innovators and broader scientific community involved, it has become a global movement.
It’s been fantastic to learn from @djimdeab and @IOyier who've been working on the reduction of malaria and many other disease elimination programs with the support of @wellcometrust.
To understand what it will take to get to zero, we need to start by asking where the 51 billion tons of emissions come from: #MastersofScaleSummit
The @Breakthrough Energy Summit is officially a wrap. Reaching net-zero emissions will be the hardest thing humanity has ever done – but I’m leaving today with an increased sense of hope.
Today was pretty special. I was able to get hands on with innovative climate tech that could help us reach net-zero.
The Five Grand Challenges can help us consider more ways to develop comprehensive solutions and reduce global emissions. Thank you, Project Art Collective, for your creativity in bringing them to life.
This is the “FOCUS” art installation on display at BE Summit. It cleverly represents the Five Grand Challenges — Electricity, Manufacturing, Agriculture, Transportation, and Buildings.
Grateful for your and @SecGranholm’s leadership. While we have made significant strides in climate innovation, we need more Breakthroughs.…
Yesterday was an important step toward a polio-free world: $2.6 billion committed will help protect millions of children. Thank you @SvenjaSchulze68, @Rotary, and the many other donors who pledged support. Let’s keep this momentum and #EndPolio together.…
I’m leaving day 1 of #BESummit2022 feeling optimistic about the future after meeting with innovators who are developing the solutions we need to reach net-zero emissions.
The first day of our #BESummit2022 addressed the state of the energy transition – where we’ve been and the Five Grand Challenges we must focus on to reach net-zero emissions. See the thread below for a recap of our day:

This week, @Breakthrough Energy is starting an annual tradition. We’re hosting a gathering in Seattle where scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs, public officials, and corporate leaders from around the world will talk about what it’s going to take to get to net-zero emissions.
I believe we’ll be able to avoid a climate disaster. The ultimate measure of success is global greenhouse-gas emissions: we need to go from 51 billion tons a year to 0 in the next three decades. I’m optimistic we can get there – if we take the right steps.
I’m bear-y honored to receive this adorable bear carrying such an urgent message: #EndPolio. As countries convene for the polio pledging moment, it’s vital they heed this bear’s message and commit to consigning polio to history.
I loved learning about how @maltaenergysto1 is meeting clean global energy demands by unlocking access to a wealth of inexpensive, clean energy.
Last week, I sat down with Bloomberg @business to talk about why I remain so committed to eradicating polio. By coming together and funding efforts like the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we can #EndPolio and build a healthier world.
The world made a promise to #EndPolio for good. No one should live in fear of this preventable disease. The Gates Foundation is proud to commit $1.2B toward helping health workers stop all forms of this virus and protect children forever.…

India's success against poliovirus showed the world that to #EndPolio, perseverance and collaboration are vital. @naveenthacker and over 1,300 leading global experts have urged the world to recommit to ending polio.
The recent case of polio in New York is a reminder that polio anywhere is a threat everywhere. It's vital for the world to not lose sight of our goal to #EndPolio for good.
This is great news. Dr. Rajiv Bahl’s commitment to child and maternal health is exemplary. Congratulations on this appointment.…
I loved learning about exciting research underway at @jaramillogroup to convert water and carbon dioxide into fuels and fertilizer:
