Exc: Gates Foundation, Despite Years of Medical Scandals, Donates Millions to African Medical Initiatives
Exclusive: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has announced $140 million to new initiatives to combat diseases in Africa. Unfortunately, the Gates Foundation and its founder, Bill Gates, have a long history of vaccine scandals, medical disasters, and sketchy medical ties.
“KIGALI and SEATTLE (June 23, 2022) – Melinda French Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, today announced a US$140 million commitment over four years in support of new initiatives and research directed by African institutions and leaders that accelerate progress toward ending malaria and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and contribute to the continent’s COVID-19 recovery. French Gates made the announcement at the Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases on the sidelines of the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, alongside African heads of state and ministers and global dignitaries.
French Gates highlighted the remarkable progress Africans and their partners have made against preventable infectious diseases. . .However, the rate of progress has slowed, prompting French Gates to call for renewed support to fight malaria and NTDs. She urged donors, the private sector, and affected country governments to increase investments to push back against these diseases and other health threats and to continue the development of vital innovations. This includes meeting the US$18 billion target for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. . .The Gates Foundation’s commitments announced today include:
A US$140 million pledge over four years to further support the work of African institutions and organizations to drive rapid declines in malaria cases and deaths. . .
Support to establish the Mwele Malecela Mentorship Program for Women in NTDs in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO). . .
The launch of Accelerate Resilient, Innovative, and Sustainable Elimination of NTDs (ARISE) in collaboration with the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and the ELMA Philanthropies. . .
‘Through renewed investments in malaria and NTDs, we can help end these endemic diseases, and prevent future pandemics by improving disease monitoring and strengthening the health systems that have driven decades of progress,’ said Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Malaria deaths have been cut in half since 2000, and hundreds of millions fewer people require treatment for NTDs compared to a decade ago. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has posed immense challenges to African communities.”
Now, for what the Gates Foundation didn’t tell you. First of all, Africa was one of the areas with the lowest rates of death from Covid-19 (it also had much lower Covid vaccination rates, incidentally). That’s not to say Covid wasn’t a problem for them—but whereas Africa handled the Covid plandemic pretty well, it certainly suffered from famines induced by the lockdowns of other countries. In other words, lockdowns created artificial problems in Africa without preventing Covid (which wasn’t nearly the problem there it was elsewhere).
Second of all, Bill Gates and his foundation have been tied to forced sterilization vaccine scandals in Africa since before the Covid plandemic. As I have previously reported:
