06 Apr Bill Gates’ Simple Message for Germany: Smart Aid Can Save Millions of Lives
Karoline Lerche, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
BERLIN — Bill Gates will visit Berlin today to share the proof that smart aid works. He will introduce “Living Proof,” a campaign designed to challenge common misconceptions around aid by providing evidence of how smart, targeted spending on development saves millions of lives and help people lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
The Living Proof campaign will provide evidence to show that we are on the brink of enormous successes in advancing global health and fighting poverty but these victories will only become reality if donor governments keep up their support. In conversations with the Federal President, the Chancellor, and the Development Minister, Gates will express his acknowledgement of Germany´s generosity and push for even stronger support for proven solutions such as the GAVI Alliance.
