Although the foundation has a wide array of initiatives  promoting economic equality for women, boosting entrepreneurship in emerging markets and tackling climate change  it is perhaps best known for its health care initiatives.

.

It has several separate entities through which it deploys its health programs, including the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). Established as part of the Foundation in 2005, CGI essentially acts as a launching pad for programs by bringing together a variety of stakeholders, including NGOs, executives, entrepreneurs, politicians, and others, who then commit to various ambitious projects. CGI doesnt actually implement those projects itselfrather, it says it serves as a catalyst for action. For instance, in 2015, as a participant in CGIs events, the infant and maternal health group Embrace Innovations pledged to bring its innovative Embrace infant warmer (which doesnt require a fixed electricity source) to 100,000 babies in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

.

Since 2005, according to CGI, it has spawned initiatives that:

.

Raised $313 million for R&D into new vaccines and medicines;
Helped provide better maternal and child survival care to more than 110 million people, and;

.

Provided treatment for more than 36 million people with tropical diseases.
Private firms are also in the mix. Biotech giant Gilead  GILD -0.39%  and the NAACP joined forces to recruit religious leaders in the African American community to help fight HIV/AIDS, which disproportionately affects blacks in the U.S. Medical tech company Becton Dickinson  bd , which ranked among the 50 companies in Fortunes Change the World list this year, has committed to dramatically cutting the price of CD4 immune cell tests for HIV-positive people across 55 countries.

.

And in 2015, the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and a host of other partners pledged to build up a world-class cancer diagnostic and treatment system in sub-Saharan Africa and Haiti, including boosting telemedicine and cloud-based electronic health records systems. The project is currently ongoing.

.

The Foundation says that another one of its arms, a collaboration with the American Heart Association (AHA) called the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, has helped provide access to healthier meals across more than 31,000 American schools and boosted physical education, the availability of nutritious meals, and extracurricular exercise in poor communities with high obesity rates.
