The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation spends millions promoting global health initiatives around the world. In 2016, the foundation raised nearly $13 billion to eradicate AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

Gates credits famed epidemiologist Dr. Bill Foege, for sparking his interest in global health through a reading list.

Foege has served as a mentor to the Gates since 1999 and has helped inform their global health philanthropy. Beyond answering questions and giving academic advice, Foege gave Gates a list of 81 books and reports on global health issues.

“All these books opened a new world for me,” writes Gates. “Making Bill’s passion for fighting poverty and disease a passion of my own.”
