Working closely with the foundation’s other global programs, we seek to channel resources into scientific discovery to create more practical versions of existing solutions and develop new solutions where needed.
Globally, at least 400 million people lack access to essential health services. Every year, more than one-third of them suffer financial catastrophe due to out-of-pocket healthcare expenditure. Millions more living in marginalised and resource-poor geographies still rely on unclean, unimproved water sources.
Working with governments, private institutions, local communities, and global experts, we invest in strong healthcare systems to ensure everyone – including marginalized groups like women and girls – can reach their highest standard of health. Our programs help people make healthy choices, and get quality care when an issue arises – even in remote areas. We promote public health awareness, training for professionals of all kinds, and improvements to a range of facilities, from basic rural clinics to specialized centres for treatment and research on a global scale.
We aim to create and improve preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic interventions for infectious diseases as well as other conditions that affect mothers, infants, and children. We do this by identifying and filling gaps in scientific knowledge, creating or implementing new technology platforms that can accelerate research in support of our goals, and investing in potentially transformative ideas.
We support organizations globally who work in line with our Health initiatives as mentioned above.
