Global philanthropist and Microsoft founder Bill Gates joined Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne in Liverpool today, to jointly announce a £3bn drive to rid the World of Malaria, with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine at the heart of the plan.

The plan will aim to see malaria deaths reduce by 90% by 2030, on a path to malaria free world. The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine was the World’s first institution dedicated to research and teaching in the field, with a research order book today of over £210 million, making it a natural and essential partner.

Bill and Melinda Gates have ploughed money into the World famous institution before, investing over £30m into its groundbreaking research back in 2010.

The latest initiative will see the UK team up with their foundation in ploughing £3bn into research and ideas to eradicate Malaria, with £140m being invested this year from the foundation.

Highlighting Liverpool’s track record at this morning’s launch, Bill hailed the plan “taking the best of science, which Liverpool is an example of, we can get malaria deaths to zero.”

Founded over 115 years ago, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine is also set to undergo an expansion via a £25m laboratory development that will enable innovative research into antibiotic resistance, meaning that Liverpool is both now at the heart of global fights against Malaria and the growing threat of antibiotic resistance, cementing the city’s Worldwide reputation for leading science.

Today’s announcement shows Liverpool as a powerful Northern Powerhouse contributor of global significance, where local industry and institutions can make a real and lasting impact.
