Gates Foundation Giving $68.2 Million In Grants To Fight Disease

$68.2 million in grants are going to be given out this year by the Gates Foundation to four disease research centers around the country. The four grants are being aimed at helping the fight against three particularly deadly, yet relatively unknown, tropical diseases that are claiming the lives of thousands every year in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Hookworm, leishmaniasis and trypanosomiasis are all deadly diseases spread by worms and parasites that affect millions every year and kill thousands. No vaccines exist for these diseases as of yet.
