To open his March 6, 2014, presentation for Thinking Differently: The CFI Series of Unexpected Conversations, Tadataka Yamada, M.D., noted that more than three-fourths of the people in the world have no access to the health care technologies that Mayo Clinic exemplifies and its patients take for granted. "The world is a very unfair place," says Dr. Yamada.
Dr. Yamada is executive vice president, chief medical and scientific officer and a board member of Takeda Pharmaceuticals. He was formerly president of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health program, overseeing grants totaling more than $9 billion for programs that apply technologies to address major health challenges in the developing world, including tuberculosis, HIV, malaria, malnutrition, and maternal and child health.
