Über uns TakePart & Global Citizen

TakePart World, funded in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is our news vertical dedicated to global health and development.

But there's an impressive amount of creativity, ingenuity, and drive springing up from the places you least expect. We’re here to share these stories and shine a light on the ideas, innovations, and movements driving historic progress on the frontlines of global change.
