Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people's health with vaccines and other life-saving tools and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to significantly improve education so that all young people have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Based in Seattle, Washington, the foundation is led by CEO Jeff Raikes and Co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.
In 2010, TCCC joined forces with the Gates Foundation and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to improve access to critical medicines in Tanzania through the country's Medical Stores Department (MSD). With the success of the initial project in Tanzania, the partnership has been extended to Ghana. By sharing our supply chain approaches, the partnership is able to address critical bottlenecks in medicine supply chains, resulting in better quality healthcare.
