Short Take: U.N. population fund gets money from Gates

Bill Gates has given $1.7 million to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) through his charity foundation. The UNFPA said the William H. Gates foundation gave the donation to cover a three-year grant for population programs in poor nations. UNFPA director Nafis Sadik said the money also would fund a country-to country exchange of technology and experiences among developing nations.
