Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health Program harnesses advances in science and technology to save lives in poor countries.  They focus on the health problems that have a major impact in developing countries but get too little attention and funding. Where proven tools exist, the Foundation supports sustainable ways to improve their delivery.  Where they don’t, the Gates Foundation invests in research and development of new interventions, such as vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics.
