Bill Gates' First Annual Letter

One of Bill Gates' resolutions for 2009 was to begin the tradition of writing an annual letter. His 2009 letter includes his thoughts on his Foundation's work on reducing childhood deaths, increasing agriculture productivity in developing countries, improving education in the US, and reducing the occurrence of polio, AIDS, and malaria. He believes in the promise of technology and explains how he supports researching technological breakthroughs to solve many of these problems (ie. vaccinations, agricultural breakthroughs) at the same time he supports providing means for people to effectively use these technological breakthroughs.
