Helping the poor is a good investment
Bill Gates says he feels a responsibility to speak up for the world's poorest because they're likely to be hit hard as economic woes force governments to reduce contributions to foreign aid.
In his third annual letter, issued on Monday, the co-chairman of the world's largest charitable foundation expressed concern about budget cuts to the programs that transfer dollars from rich nations to poor ones, providing medical assistance, food aid, vaccines and other help.
The Microsoft co-founder and chairman says in the 24-page letter that not only is helping the poor with their medical needs and giving them the tools to be self-sufficient the right thing to do, it's also a good investment.
'Securing the conditions that will lead to a healthy, prosperous future for everyone is a goal, I believe, we all share,' wrote the co-chair of the Seattle-based Bill Melinda Gates Foundation.
In the letter, Gates outlines the ways helping people saves money over the long term: From cutting the cost to treat the sick by preventing their illnesses to increasing a child's earning potential and future contribution to society through education.
He says British Prime Minister David Cameron gives him hope that not all countries have forgotten about the needs of the poor, noting that the United Kingdom has kept its promise to grow foreign aid spending despite the need to cut other programs.
'It is inspiring to see a leader stand up for what he believes is right, even when it isn't easy,' Gates wrote.
A large chunk of his letter this year focuses on one disease - polio - an illness many people thought had been eradicated. The disease did disappear from most developed nations decades ago, but it still exists in more than a dozen countries. Late last week, the foundation announced a new financial commitment of $102 million toward the goal of worldwide eradication.[Ron: To understand what this means have a listen to leading vaccine expert, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who explains how Merck's vaccines were responsible for spreading AIDS, leukemia and other cancers worldwide. See: Dr. confesses Cancer & other Viruses is found in Vaccines at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgBBwOnmy3w or http://abundanthope.net/pages/Health_and_Nutrition_37/Dr-confesses-Cancer-other-Viruses-is-found-in-Vaccines.shtml ]
The foundation, which has an endowment of $US36.4 billion ($A36.85 billion), made grants totaling $US3 billion ($A3.04 billion) in 2009. By far the biggest portion went to global health, where grants totaling more than $US1.8 billion ($A1.82 billion) were made in 2009. Since 1994, the foundation has made grants totaling $US23.9 billion ($A24.2 billion). The totals for 2010 have not yet been posted on the foundation's website.
Gates said it would take aggressive campaigns to give polio vaccines to all children aged under five in poor countries, at a cost of nearly $US1 billion ($A1.01 billion) a year to give the world a chance at eliminating polio. He admitted to being overly optimistic about polio eradication in 2003, saying the world was only a few years away from ending polio. The disease started to spread again during that time. [Ron: WHY?].
'The experience of 2003 serves as a reminder to be humble as we move forward.[Ron: ?!?] But humility does not mean fatalism,' he wrote. [Ron: Folks, this man is laughing at us!].
The rest of his letter, which reads more like a cross between an annual report and an extended blog entry, shares short stories on the current direction of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Gates says vaccines are the most cost-effective health tool ever invented. [Ron: And the evidence for that assertion is ...?] He reminds his readers that 1.4 million children will die this year from diseases for which there are already vaccines - like measles, pneumonia and tetanus. [Ron: This is fear mongering disinformation. Vaccines introduce poisons into the body which, at best, harm and inhibit the human autoimmune system. Children are especially vulnerable to such introduced poisons because they are smaller and have less autoimmune system defences.]
Melinda Gates has made maternal and child health issues her special focus. Gates writes that progress has been made in this area as well, but more than eight million children under five still die every year.
He said he was getting frustrated with the slow progress in the fight against AIDS. [Really? How cute!].
'I am willing to be viewed as a troublemaker by people who are happy with the status quo,' he wrote. [Ron: If, as is apparent, Bill Gates wants to change the status quo by seducing and/or forcing mllions of poor children to take vaccines then indeed he is more than a trouble maker, he is an angel of death!].
