Disease Prevention & Cures

Disease Prevention & Cures

Together we can rid the world of disease.

Heart disease. Cancer. Stroke. Obesity. Diabetes. Six in 10 U.S. adults have a chronic disease. These diseases, which accounted for tens of millions of deaths in 2016, are already within our power to treat or cure. Through basic apps run on smartphones, people can follow healthy diets and schedule recommended screenings. The bottom line: If a cure exists, it should exist for all, and health tech has the potential to be that democratizing ingredient. A moonshot to cure disease is about access, but it’s also about discovery. Groundbreaking advances in machine learning are increasing our capacity to understand the drugs we’re making, and how they will affect our bodies. This, in turn, is opening the door to faster cures and targeted medicines for rare diseases.
