Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The private sector – business – is good at developing products and services, while the public sector – government – is good at delivering solutions to all the people who need them. In many cases, the private and public sectors, acting either separately or together, meet people’s needs. But there are gaps, spaces where some people don’t get what they need to live healthy, productive lives.

BMGF was founded on a simple premise that people everywhere, regardless of identity or circumstances, should have the chance to live a healthy, productive life. They are working toward a future that is more diverse, equitable, and inclusive for all.
