#WorldAlzheimersDay is an inspiring reminder that hope is on the horizon. Brilliant scientists all over the world are working hard to stop Alzheimer’s disease—and they’re making terrific progress. https://t.co/BJKp8mJRRt
Avoiding a climate disaster will require a new industrial revolution. I'm excited to see @Breakthrough Energy Catalyst announce the first private sector anchor partners who will work together to build the clean industries of the future. https://t.co/93OV0MLUW3
As we’ve seen this past year, new variants of a disease can emerge over time. In order to develop new tools to fight the disease, we need to identify those variants quickly. Dr. Senjuti Saha is one expert working to sequence SARS-CoV-2: https://t.co/XxexUmVwHo https://t.co/cEbA3TuEos
But the fact that we can point to positive signs amid a once-in-a-generation global pandemic is extraordinary. With one hand tied behind their backs, countless individuals, organizations, and countries went above and beyond. https://t.co/InzRGXGtyc
Of course, the full extent of the pandemic’s impact on the SDGs will take years to fully understand, as more and better data becomes available. And this data doesn’t diminish the very real suffering the pandemic has caused for people everywhere—far from it.
Initial projections about the pandemic’s impact on the fight against malaria were dire. But that projection spurred many countries to action to ensure that bed nets were distributed and that testing and antimalarial drugs remained available.
When the pandemic hit, many feared the worst when it came to maintaining progress on fighting other diseases. But all over the world people stepped up to avert the worst-case scenarios. One example is malaria: https://t.co/InzRGXGtyc https://t.co/aM5mszTtWR
Where you live shouldn’t determine whether or not you have access to a Covid-19 vaccine, health supplies, or a diagnostic test: https://t.co/DbwClIBRox https://t.co/eeH7Ezn0Fb
Even amid the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen that progress can continue thanks to work started years earlier. In this year’s #Goalkeepers2030 report, we share some of the lessons that have inspired all of us at the @gatesfoundation. https://t.co/pTc6N1cg4J
This news is not surprising to many of us who work in global health. But there are things the world can do to help get management of these diseases back on track. I’m eager to share more in the annual Goalkeepers report tomorrow. https://t.co/3Q6QE1prmG #Goalkeepers2030
I’m thinking today about the frontline heroes who risked their lives for us on September 11th and those who continue to serve our country every day.
RT @gatesfoundation: The 2021 Goalkeepers Report is out next week!
In 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals to end poverty, fight inequality, and stop climate change by 2030. What's your number?
“How do we use technology and innovation to solve today’s problems?” That’s the question David Sengeh, Sierra Leone’s chief innovation officer and education minister, is looking to answer with the country’s National Innovation and Digital Strategy: https://t.co/btg2gPFI4Q https://t.co/EV9zh7Lq0x
The world needs many breakthroughs to get from 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases to zero in order to avoid a climate disaster. It’s encouraging to see this kind of collaboration. https://t.co/wW6ftAL5id
I found the book to be valuable on a number of levels and will have more to say about it soon! https://t.co/Ur2aE81FyV
The first time I met David Sengeh, I was blown away by his intellect, his ambition, and his sense of humor. He has been a remarkable advocate for Sierra Leone, and I’m confident that we’ll be hearing about @dsengeh’s amazing work for decades to come. https://t.co/js7uakLj4m
Africa's success against wild polio last year is one of the most inspiring stories in global health. I’m optimistic that, with the commitment and collaboration that achieved that goal, countries in the region can beat all forms of the virus and #EndPolio https://t.co/lpJsrhAQcf
None of us would be where we are today without the incredible teachers who helped shape our perspectives. Brooke Brown is an extraordinary teacher who has helped her students adapt to extraordinary times. https://t.co/btiQikTyVX
.@GAP_Foundation’s Bio-Hermes Study is the first to compare results of blood and digital biomarker tests with imaging and traditional cognitive tests. This could help identify Alzheimer’s earlier and detect progression of the disease, to help us get closer to a cure. https://t.co/9xUQ0ZldSI
