You could find wild poliovirus in 125 countries in 1988. Today, it exists in just two. And more than 18 million people are walking today who would otherwise have been paralyzed by polio. Here’s why we aren’t done yet: https://gatesnot.es/2KGq7tX

Some of our most vital partners in the fight to #EndPolio are philanthropies like @alwaleed_philan, @bloombergdotorg, Tahir Foundation, Dalio Philanthropies & Ningxia Yanbao Charity Foundation. Their support has helped deliver vaccines and protect millions from polio paralysis.

Even a single child paralyzed by polio is one too many, but I’m optimistic that we will eradicate the disease thanks to the GPEI’s persistence and creativity. https://gatesnot.es/2O1DVkK

In Abu Dhabi this week, the world committed $2.6B to #EndPolio. Thank you @MohamedBinZayed for your leadership in helping push this terrible disease to the brink of eradication.

The more I’ve learned about Alzheimer’s disease, the more I’ve come to admire the volunteers who participate in clinical trials, and their caregivers too. Here’s a way you can help fight Alzheimer’s: https://gatesnot.es/2K4m4Y8

Expanding the diversity of therapies in the pipeline and more efficiently recruiting patients for clinical trials will increase our odds of discovering a breakthrough. I’m hopeful it will lead to an intervention that reduces the impact of Alzheimer’s. https://twitter.com/alzassociation/status/1191355165120585728

One of the many awful things about watching someone you love struggle with Alzheimer’s is the feeling of helplessness. You keep thinking that there must be something more you can do. Here's one option. https://b-gat.es/2NJ8evt

We have cut the number of child deaths in half over the last 20 years. New tools like these precision maps from
@IHME_UW will help us cut child mortality in half again by 2030. https://b-gat.es/2oya4qe

Buildings are one of the five areas where we need a lot of innovation if we’re going to avoid a climate disaster. I wrote about one company with a particularly clever approach. https://b-gat.es/31XZ9Ut

I always like to try out a new TV show or two when I’m on the road. What should I watch next? I set up an Ask on @Likewise to collect your recommendations. https://b-gat.es/31T91yJ

This is one of the most important topics in medicine today: how can we make data more readily available for researchers to look for patterns and identify new pathways for treatment. https://b-gat.es/2BKvG5T

Melinda and I feel pressure to make every dollar and every day count, which is why we say no to a lot more opportunities than we say yes to. Working with partners around the world to #EndPolio has been a fight worth every dollar. https://b-gat.es/2N6gd5l
