5:21 pm
next. china's a problem has become famous for its large number of elderly many age one hundred years or older one i want to investigate state the raging home the secrets to a long and healthy locks on al-jazeera to. see. you know our dream without knowing about. the dramatic impact in the case of global hope one of the richest people in the world bill gates initially made his fortune by founding and running the microsoft corporation. nearly twenty years ago he founded the bill and melinda gates foundation ranking now works all of the time. going down into more than fifty billion dollars he's the world's wealthiest private foundation that aims to in homs health care and education and to reduce poverty. and to keep in global
5:22 pm
health care controlled by just three trustees gate his wife melinda and billionaire warren buffett. the foundation's being credited with helping to save the lives of more than one hundred million children through increasing access to essential vaccines. but it's not without controversy. critics say as excessive influence in the health care policy in the developing world some argue it's lost resources but now rank focus on health care provides a bandaid to health crises that it cools to point deep to political problems in many of the world's poorest countries many of the people exposed to the diseases that the foundation aims to eradicate it in sub-saharan africa and that's where much of its work is focused but a recent african union summit in ethiopia has capital that it's about gates came to
5:23 pm
meet with heads of state to talk about health care. almost as many children will be born in africa specifically what was he trying to accomplish and. to those who say he's. wanted to so problems that some of those same heads of state willing to address them so. we'll discuss this with bill gates as he tools. i mr bill gates thank you for talking to al-jazeera who are here in the capital of ethiopia which is the seat of the african union. african leaders are you hoping to talk to them. what are you hoping to get out of it. i was invited to come to the summit and give a brief remarks my focus is on the opportunity. of the human capital here in africa that the right things are done with the young people in terms of health and
5:24 pm
education that there's a very bright future for the continent there's a lot of great examples here. who have done an amazing job getting their primary health care system working and you know no reason why that can't be done in in all fifty four countries and in terms of specifics from the summit. to get anything concrete from from this meeting where the. the health meeting. they'll be a number of pledges and discussions about. the big health funds global fund global alliance for vaccines which both. over the next eighteen months have made replenishments going on and seen that some domestic resources from the african countries are going into these causes will help a lot with that and they need to be clear message about. you know these countries really valuing that work so that we can continue cutting. cutting malaria. that's
5:25 pm
getting more innovative vaccines out to all the children of africa and the billion bill and melinda gates foundation focuses particularly on health care in some of the poorest countries in the world was the reason for this focus on health care when i was stunned to learn that hundreds of thousands of kids most of them in africa were dying of diarrhea over half of those lives could have been saved if there was a vaccine that was used in middle income in upper income countries called the rotavirus vaccine and so are pounding asian found other partners particularly the aid donors and created the global lions for vaccines and so now that rotavirus vaccine is getting out to almost all of those children that these new vaccines are the biggest reasons why africa has cut child mortality almost in half since
5:26 pm
gabi was created so it's kind of amazing that you know for less than a thousand dollars you're saving a life you're improving the health of the survivors and if you improve health countries generally choose to reduce their population growth voluntarily so you're making all the challenges of the environment and jobs and stability that much more solvable to the future the foundation spends money on public education programs in the u.s. why is the public education in the u.s. and health in the world's poorest countries why not education in the world's poorest countries as well as well by far the biggest problem we have is the global health program. and that's over sixty percent of our money it's helping to invent new tools like malaria vaccine aids vaccine and then supporting these primary
5:27 pm
health care systems to get. all the children in the u.s. we picked education as our big cars. and you know once we've had a major major success in the u.s. i'm sure they'll be lessons for the entire world on that but you know we saw the biggest deficit in the u.s. is. the lack to be equal opportunity which is what the country stands for the whole system although very expensive. you know it's. it's working you know quite well we didn't see anything. huge we could do there we do talk to the people who do international education we think that's very important but taking on the big diseases and these delivery systems you know that so our priority that's where we have incredible depth of expertise and you know over the next several
5:28 pm
decades even something like malaria. we should get it close to eradication so they can really bring a. dramatic solution in health that enables education in prosperity so you think that if the world's poorest countries were healthy functioning democracies that it is the governments that should be providing public health care but the gates foundation of course is spending a lot of money on public health care you know doing the government's job for them well absolutely it's a job for government to do. and once countries reach a certain level of income say like vietnam or indonesia or india then they graduate from aid bill that the that is they're entirely using domestic resources and that's the goal of development aid is is to help countries graduate so the track record theirs is pretty fantastic now a lot of countries are. in terms of their being very poor of lack of
5:29 pm
governance that's not going to happen anytime soon and so as human beings. you know we should care about those doubts we should care about the malnutrition and we should help build that government capacity so we're not in to stay in any country for the long run that's that's the government's job but it takes something like creating a malaria vaccine. the poor countries who have malaria don't have the the skills or the resources to do it and the rich countries it's they haven't seen malaria for a long long time and so there are a few things. some people call global public goods we're having a foundation. pick those scientists get behind them so the patients these are ten to twenty or projects many of them and you have to have multiple approaches and
5:30 pm
change based on you know what looks like it might be successful there's a rule that. our foundation saw that wasn't being filled but it's not the long term funding of the health system a lot of health care campaign is in many of these poorest countries skeptical of skeptical about the political will of the government to provide the health care that it should be providing to the population and you know often they argue is not a priority and you know corruption of course is a threat to too much is spent on big infrastructure projects and other things in the gates foundation and what does the gates foundation do to try to hold these governments to account for the money that they should be spending on health care well we're purely in an advisory role we're not. in control of any decisions the world health organization is in working with these countries the one thing we can do is. we can highlight the example is an africa has lots of example.
5:31 pm
even governments for some of the other functioning isn't too strong like zimbabwe manages to keep its primary health care system functioning fairly well some that are fairly well off like nigeria actually particularly in the north don't manage to make the primary health care system work well so when leaders are interested in improving then there are lessons you know from ethiopia or wander many many countries that can be applied so we're here to help when there's the will to go in and make that effort and i want to talk about the size and scale of. the gates foundation which i understand is the largest philanthropic foundation in the world . you're spending about forty five billion dollars every year i mean not as much as or more than the entire government budgets of many of the countries in this continent so that comes with of course an enormous amount of influence you're
5:32 pm
a very big player in terms of global health care have it understand that the trust is controlled by just three people that you and your wife melinda are in warren buffett is not a an enormous concentration of of power and in a sector that's of course meant to represent and help millions of people are meant to include a diversity of opinions and voices well the resources we're using for our work don't come from governments they got. solicit from other people this is taking the success that warren buffett had at berkshire and the success i had at microsoft in applying those resources in. the premarket system. you know people can take their wealth and you know spend it on. consumption or pass along to their kids you know what we've chosen to do is focus on the diseases of
5:33 pm
the poor and make sure that the best scientists in the world are working on each idea and malaria and malnutrition and prematurity things where the understanding is still not there and. be great if that had been done before we came along. actually unhealthy the amount of controversy is less than you'd expect because the idea of saving children's lives is just not that controversy all and so taking and we built the infrastructure that can measure. these deaths in the malnutrition through what's called the international health metrics and evaluation which is funded by us now we know the various causes of death that's called the global burden of disease it's a brilliant website let's see over time by country by age by disease what's going on.
