Expose the Gates Foundation

We've uncovered evidence to show that that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s activities are directly benefitting big business.

Bill Gates

With assets of $43.5 billion the foundation is the largest charitable foundation in the world. It is arguably the most influential player on issues of global health and agriculture, and distributes more aid for global health than any government.

The trend to involve business in addressing the world’s problems is increasingly part of international development aid. The UK government is a keen advocate and has been strongly criticised by the Independent Commission for Aid Impact for pursuing this model without ensuring that partnerships with business actually make a difference to poverty and inequality.

Email the chair of the International Development Select Committee, Stephen Twigg MP, asking the committee to investigate the relationship between DfID and the Gates Foundation.
