Gates Foundation rearranges public health world
The Foundation’s interests have stretched from AIDS to reducing maternal mortality, bolstering nutrition, and improving treatment and prevention for several tropical diseases. Nearly half of the global health money has gone to vaccines, including a whopping US$750 million to the Vaccine Fund.
