Amidst Ongoing Global Crises, Gates Foundation Announces Largest Budget Ever: $8.6 Billion in 2024 to Save and Improve Lives

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced its largest annual budget to date as it works toward the goal of a healthier, more prosperous world for all. With global health budgets in decline overall, a portion of the additional funding will go toward advancing global health innovations that will save and improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people, including newborn babies and pregnant mothers living in low-income communities.

The foundation’s $8.6 billion 2024 budget was formally approved by its board of trustees on January 13.
