Health, Wealth and Bill Gates

Bill Gates:

You know there's a mother and a father behind every one of these deaths that are dealing with that tragedy. When there's 3 million kids every year dying of things that are completely preventable with the technology we have today, I can try and magnify how I feel about that one situation by a factor of 3 million.

I'll never be able to put myself in the situation that people growing up in the less developed countries are in. I thought: 'What's the greatest inequity left?' And the more I learned about health and the unbelievable inequity ... it shocked me every step of the way."
