CUID and Giving What We Can have joined forces to bring you an insight into the pioneering work of at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Launched in 2000 and said to be the largest transparently operated private foundation in the world, the the Gates Foundation is a global leader in the efforts to enhance healthcare and reduce extreme poverty.

As the foundation’s European Director, Dr Anja Langenbucher is deeply involved in this effort. Prior to joining the foundation in 2011, she also worked in a range of roles for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the World Bank in Washington and the European Commission in Brussels.

The event will be excellent oppotunity to hear about the major challenges and opportunities in today’s fight against disease worldwide. Anja will give a short talk and then take questions on both combatting disease and careers in the development sector.

Refreshments will be provided. Hope to see you there!
