Winning hearts and minds to beat polio

Today, in the historic New York City residence of former US president and polio survivor Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Bill Gates took to the podium. As he spoke before a group of journalists, the Microsoft founder detailed the goal of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help stamp out polio. His words come on the heels of an announcement last Thursday when Gates, together with the Crown Prince of Abu-Dabhi of the United Arab Emirates, pledged to donate a total of $100 million toward many vaccines, including that against polio.
