Title Abstracts - Dr. Peter Khoury

A World of Good: Partnering to Support Global Health

Peter Khoury Dr., The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation


Although the death of children under 5 years of age has been declining during the past 20 year, still 5.9 million dies in 2015 equating to 11 deaths every minute. Many of these children are dying of vaccine preventable illness. At the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we believe that all lives have equal value and where you are born should not determine your opportunities in life. Since the Foundation’s creation in 2000, we have focused on addressing some of the world’s most difficult problems including the improvement of people’s health combined with the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In this presentation, Dr. Peter Khoury will discuss the Foundation’s philosophy, the areas of focus for investments, and how the Gates Foundation partners with governments, industry, universities and others involved in innovative developments to bring these life-changing products and programs to the world’s poorest individuals. He will also describe the process for which the Foundation achieves the greatest impact with their investments, give examples of recent successes in Global Health, and discuss the current areas of R&D for which the Foundation makes investment
