Bill Gates comes from a fairly philanthropic family and, by all accounts,
believes in world health issues. Hence, he invests in a variety of health
related programs in both the third world and the first. I think the work of
his foundation towards planned parenthood and vaccination in the third world
is beyond reproach.
