Microsoft owner Bill Gates and his wife Melinda's foundation threw a challenge to all scientists from across the world to design a stronger, thinner, softer and cheaper condom so that more and more people choose to play it safe and still enjoy.
According to Bill Gates, India has worked day in and day out to eradicate the menace named polio from the country. He says his foundation started working in India about 10 years ago and commenced when many people feared that HIV/AIDS would spread like fire in the country.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has recently given away a sum of $100,000 to an Irish research centre dubbed the Plant and AgriBiosciences Research Centre(PABC) at NUI Galway to provide them funding for a research.
Bill Gates has recently set a challenge for entrepreneurs - unusual but potentially profitable. A report has uncovered that a "next generation" condom has been asked to be created by them.
For the same, Mr. Gates has offered a funding of US$1 million.
Scientists from all over the world have taken up the challenge that Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has put forth, and that is to reinvent toilets for 2.5 billion people around the world. The foundation announcing some projects on Tuesday said that they will be getting more money to take their ideas from the lab to cities.
Recognizing Microsoft chairman and philanthropist Bill Gates’ noteworthy contribution in terms of providing funds for an ongoing fight against AIDS, leading AIDS charity amfAR - the American Foundation for AIDS Research - honored Gates on Saturday, the eve of the 2012 International AIDS Conference which will be being held in Washington from July 22 to July 27.
"Till such time better designs come up, implementation of the two designs for individual household toilets and community toilets for disposal of human waste developed by Sulabh will realize the wishes of Gates to a large extent", says Sulabh International's founder Bindeshwar Pathak.
