Our work begins with CLADD's belief that all lives have equal value.  We think all people deserve the chance to have healthy, productive lives.


Our approach to giving is driven by our foundations guiding principles:  


  • Philanthropy plays an important role. 

  • Committing ourselves to the donation of medical equipment to prevent and control diseases worldwide.

  • Science and technology have great potential to improve lives around the world.

  • We identify a specific point of intervention and apply our efforts against a theory of change.

  • We take risks, make big bets, and move with urgency. We are in it for the long haul.

  • We advocate vigorously but responsibly in our areas of focus.

  • We must be humble and mindful in our actions and words. We seek and heed the counsel of outside voices.

  • Delivering results with the resources we have been given is of the utmost importance.

  • We demand ethical behavior of ourselves.

  • We leave room for growth and change.
