Summary: (CIT): The David E. Barmes Global Health Lecture is the single most important named lecture at NIH on global health. This year’s speaker is Bill Gates. The lecture series honors the late David Edward Barmes, special expert for international health at NIDCR. The lecture was established in 2001 to honor his lifelong dedication to research aimed at improving health for people in low-income countries. About Bill Gates: Known for his philanthropy, Mr. Gates advocates for research and innovation to help people live healthy and productive lives. He also is an outspoken supporter of federal investment in basic scientific research. In 2000, he and his wife Melinda established the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to improve international public health through the development of vaccines, therapies, diagnostics, agricultural products, and other technologies. The foundation partners with the private and public sectors to ensure that these technologies can be delivered successfully to the people who need them. In the United States, the Gates Foundation supports innovations that improve public education. To date, the Gates Foundation has invested $27.6 billion in grants. The Gates Foundation also partners with the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) to support global health research. Through this collaboration, ongoing programs are studying diseases such as malaria, enteric infections, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS, as well as training researchers and medical personnel in the developing world.
