(2003-01-27) Bill Gates World Health

The Gates Foundation is giving a $200 million grant to establish an initiative called "The Grand Challenge-s in Global Health." The objectives are to identify (Public Health) research areas with the greatest promise for saving and improving lives in the developing world (Third World); to fund novel, interdisciplinary approaches among researchers seeking solutions; and to get the rich-world scientific community to apply its experience to pivotal health questions of the developing world... It's tragic how little is spent on Malaria and TB (tuberculosis), but it's not surprising: 99% of sufferers live in developing countries.

Reason Mag supports this.
