“I was also thrilled to hear the news that in June, that the WHO recognized China’s remarkable success in defeating malaria, declaring the country officially free from the disease,” Gates said. The Gates Foundation has made a mission of combating malaria worldwide.
“So like many of you, I believe the world can become better. And I know innovation and collaboration are key to getting there. I look forward to once again being able to travel to China, to see all of you and this work, in person. But for now have a wonderful holiday and a very healthy and happy new year,” Gates concluded.
