Gates Tells WHO He'll Donate $250M More

"Our foundation launched the Grand Challenges in Global Health in 2003 to get the world's top scientific minds to take on the world's deadliest diseases,'' Gates told the opening of the annual assembly of the 192-nation World Health Organization. Scientists from more than 80 countries sent in thousands of pages of ideas, he said. Ideas included vaccines that don't need refrigeration, easy-to-use devices to detect life-threatening fevers and drugs that attack diseases hiding from the immune system. "We were so taken with the response that we increased our commitment to this research from $200 million to $450 million,'' Gates said.
