Frontiers: HIV & Sickle Cell Disease

About this Fund

HIV and sickle cell disease are among the most prevalent and deadly diseases for children globally. This can be solved. We have an ambitious plan to end both diseases by creating a single-shot cure that is safe, effective, and affordable for all people, no matter where they live. The Gates Foundation will match 100% of your gift to this transformational program.

Bold projects require vision, partnership, and patience.
