Bill Gates, the philanthropist and founder of Microsoft, on Sunday praised David Cameron for his “absolutely fantastic” decision to embrace the UN target of spending 0.7% of GNI (gross national income) on overseas aid by 2013.
“The UK government is taking a lead,” Gates said of Britain’s role in convening the London conference of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI).
