Thanks for having me on the show, @JKCorden! And thanks to the all of the late night hosts for focusing on this critical challenge. I’m optimistic that we can come together to avoid a climate disaster.
If we want to put this pandemic behind us, we need to get shots in arms at home & around the world. I spoke with @BillGates yesterday about how we can meet this goal and be better prepared for the next pandemic.
More than 80% of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in high- and upper-middle-income countries while less than 1% have been administered in low-income countries. This is both profoundly unfair and hinders progress towards ending the pandemic:
A global response will help the world end the COVID crisis. I'm glad to see so many leaders coming together at this U.S.-led virtual Global COVID-19 summit, and look forward to their continued efforts to help the world move out of the acute phase of this pandemic.
Today at approximately 11 a.m. EDT, @POTUS will convene a Virtual COVID-19 Summit on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York, NY. Watch live here on Twitter, https://t.co/58Uc9lZRv7, and https://t.co/utT8EPlR7r. https://t.co/iwSHswxG0D
If we want to stop Alzheimer’s disease, one of the biggest things we need to develop is a reliable, affordable, and accessible diagnostic. Breakthroughs in testing may someday soon let us substantially alter the course of the disease: #WorldAlzheimersDay
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.
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:
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:
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.
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. #Goalkeepers2030
“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:
Scaling the technologies we need to get to net zero by 2050 will require unprecedented innovation and collaboration across the public and private sectors.
More from @TheEconomist on the global flood of investment in the clean energy transition: https://t.co/dC7qlTwh94
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.
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
