Accessible, affordable and equitable health services and systems
We benefit people in developing countries by creating affordable, equitable high-quality health systems.
Solutions to our health care crisis are already at work in developing countries.
Improving global health is a pivotal focus of the Foundation. We are working to transform health systems to make them more accessible and affordable. We are also linking global disease surveillance networks to help those in struggling communities minimize the spread of infectious diseases that can lead to pandemics. Our current health initiatives:
• Improve the monitoring, detection and response to infectious diseases such as Ebola, SARS, and avian influenza to prevent pandemics.
- Expand the use of technology to improve health care.
- Engage the private sector to work with the public sector in developing practices and policies to provide and finance health services for the poor.
