Scott Morrison has discussed the future of the World Health Organisation with one of its biggest donors. The prime minister spoke with Bill Gates on Tuesday, just days after the Microsoft founder and philanthropist used a global broadcast organised by Lady Gaga to appeal for support for the embattled global health body. Mr Morrison and Mr Gates are also understood to have discussed vaccines and the Indo-Pacific’s health challenges.
This has really bothered me for weeks! How does Bill to just demand audiences with world leaders? Why does an unelected billionaire pull all the strings and why should the Aus PM listen to him?

Recently Gates called for a “national tracking system similar to South Korea, saying that “in Seattle, the [University of Washington] is providing thousands of tests per day but no one is connected to a national tracking system” and that “Whenever there is a positive test it should be seen to understand where the disease is and whether we need to strengthen the social distancing.”
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates exchanged a phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday, according to Seoul. (10th April)
In April President of South Korea also said Seoul is working with the Gates Foundation through the Korea-based Right Fund. The fund operates through contributions: about $20 million from South Korea and an additional $10 million from the Gates Foundation.
On Friday Gates said he plans to double the size of the Right Fund. The organization is expected to play a key role in global health and in overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic, Gates said, according to Seoul.
Moon said he plans to strengthen cooperation with Gates on a COVID-19 vaccine, in addition to delivering humanitarian aid to developing nations most vulnerable to infectious diseases. Gates agreed to cooperate on a vaccine, the presidential Blue House said.
