The Gates Foundation supports programs that reach 45 countries across the continent, and from our offices in Africa, we focus efforts in the 10 countries where we believe we can have the greatest impact. Our aim is to help leaders and local institutions chart their own path to reduce poverty and improve health.

Elsewhere in Africa

We also focus our efforts on partnering with local government and NGOs in several other African countries to advance healthcare, improve agricultural production, strengthen financial services for the poor, and improve maternal and child health. These countries include Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, and Zambia.
