ABC News struck a deal with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to fund a year-long investigative project probing into worldwide health problems and their solutions. The Gates Foundation is giving ABC News a grant worth $1.5 million and in turn, ABC is supplying $4.5 million for this reporting project which will cover health topics around the world. By accepting the grant, ABC News agreed to include extensive coverage of global health topics and crisis issues on all its programs in addition to a one-hour primetime special airing this December which will kick-off the project and another hour-long special in December 2011 marking the conclusion of the coverage.
