I’m inspired by Quarraisha Abdool Karim and @ProfAbdoolKarim. They are two of the most respected HIV/AIDS researchers in the world. And now they are helping guide the COVID-19 response in South Africa and around the globe. #WorldAIDSDay

My parents taught me to leave the world better than I found it.

So many people across the country believe in giving back, too. In a year like no other, let’s make this a giving season like no other.

This #GivingTuesday, visit to get started.

I’m a big fan of author @harari_yuval and was excited to talk to him about why humanity is so willing to believe falsehoods and what these lies tell us about ourselves—both as individuals and as a society.

Today is the 25th anniversary of my first book, The Road Ahead. I made a lot of predictions about technology in the book, and it was fun to look back and see what I got right (and what I got wrong).

This week, Rashida and I ask a big question that has never felt more urgent: is inequality inevitable? We spoke with Compton mayor @AjaLBrown and @OppInsights director Raj Chetty about what it’ll take to build a more equal society.

Nearly forty million people have Alzheimer’s or dementia today. We have no way to stop or even slow the disease at this point, but I’m hopeful the new Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative (@AlzData) will speed up progress.

Quoted @MSuzman

Ending this pandemic will require the largest public health effort in history & much more funding. So, today @gatesfoundation is committing another $70million to global efforts to develop & distribute safe, affordable, & timely vaccines for low- & middle-income countries

No one is safe from COVID-19 until everyone is safe. We started the foundation because we believe every person deserves the chance to live a healthy and productive life. In this global crisis, that means people everywhere should have access to a safe vaccine when it’s available.

How can the fight to #endpolio help inform the  #COVID19 response? The @unfoundation’s Elizabeth Thrush looks at how the lessons from global efforts to eliminate polio can be applied to the current pandemic:

I look forward to working with the new administration and leaders on both sides in Congress on getting the surging pandemic under control, engaging partners around the world on issues like poverty and climate change, and addressing issues of inequality and opportunity at home.

Even with his busy schedule, Dr. Fauci took the time to sit down with me (AGAIN) and talk about what we’ve gotten right and what we’ve gotten wrong. Let’s continue to be positive! #StateOfInspiration
