Gates explores Ghana’s health progress

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

The freckled man with the rectangular glasses instantly recognisable to much of the world stood in the West African heat, staring at data that had nothing to do with selling software.

But it was exactly where Bill Gates said he wanted to be, at a tin-roof clinic in a village in Ghana, listening to local health-care workers explain the progress they had made in vaccinating babies.

“These are the countries where I’m the least known,” the 57-year-old Microsoft co-founder told AFP later on Tuesday, after a journalist pointed out that several of those at the clinic did not know who he was.
