On Bill Gates wrote: "We started our day in Cange, a town in the Central Plateau of Haiti where PIH has a clinic. When we arrived, a small student orchestra was performing a song that I later learned was from Pirates of the Caribbean. At least judging from what we saw, life in Cange has improved since the last time Melinda and I were there."

Later they went to the city of Corporan where he visited a vocational training center. Thereafter, the delegation was welcomed at the University Hospital of Mirebalais (HUM).

At midday, Kiskeya reports, Bill Gates and Paul Farmer flew to Port-au-Prince without making statements to the press...

An article on Radio Metropole's web site read...

Bill Gates visited his works in the Central Plateau --- "In 2035 there will be almost no poor country," dixit American billionaire Bill Gates. And, to be convinced, he visited programs funded his charitable foundation in the Central Plateau, activities that can transform Haiti, as he predicted, in "lower middle income country."
