“With partnership as our guiding principle, we’ve launched programs that have now helped more than 21 million people around the world access lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatment; created healthier learning environments for more than 30 million children in the U.S. who are eating better and moving more; built a community of change-makers through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) whose Commitments to Action have improved the lives of more than 430 million people in 180 countries; and much more,” said President Clinton in his introduction to the report. “Along the way, we’ve constantly evaluated and re-evaluated our programs to figure out what approaches work best. Over the past year, we relied on all these lessons to confront unprecedented challenges.”


In her letter to readers, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton said, “My father started the Clinton Foundation 20 years ago based on principles that have guided his entire life in public service: everyone deserves a chance to succeed, everyone has something to contribute, and we all do better when we work together. Principles that are as true today as ever — particularly when it comes to our shared public health.”

About the Clinton Foundation


Building on a lifetime of public service, President Clinton established the Clinton Foundation on the simple belief that everyone deserves a chance to succeed, everyone has a responsibility to act, and we all do better when we work together. For nearly two decades, those values have energized the work of the Foundation in overcoming complex challenges and improving the lives of people across the United States and around the world.


As an operating foundation, we work on issues directly or with strategic partners from the business, government, and nonprofit sectors to create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service. Our programs are designed to make a real difference today while serving as proven models for tomorrow. The goal of every effort is to use available resources to get better results faster – at the lowest possible cost.


We firmly believe that when diverse groups of people bring resources together in the spirit of true cooperation, transformative ideas will emerge to drive life-changing action.
