Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty.
In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life.
Based in Seattle, Washington, the foundation is led by CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann and Co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.
“Our work in India started a decade ago with the purpose of developing a model HIV-prevention program. Since then, our work has expanded to include maternal and child health, health and nutrition services, vaccines and routine immunization, family planning, agricultural development, sanitation, control of infectious diseases, and financial inclusion. Together with our partners, we deliver results none of us could achieve by acting alone.” Foundation said in its website.
“Our efforts in India focus on key areas that will affect the future of India’s most vulnerable communities: reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition; sanitation; agricultural development; and financial inclusion.
