Setting Targets to Save Lives
If someone told me they had a better idea for improving the world, I would ask: “Can you beat a nine-fold return on investment, saving more than 61 million children and 3 million mothers, and preventing 21 million deaths from AIDS and 10 million from TB? Frankly, I doubt it. But if you can, I would love to see your plan.”
Global health is a fantastic investment. It should be a top priority on the world’s agenda. Figuring out how to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals will require many tough decisions, but this is not one of them.
Fantastic case from Bill Gates to invest in global health.
