Things that make you go hmmmmm…!? Now why is Bill Gates so concerned about Malaria in Africa killing Africans, when blacks are being killed daily in the U.S. with poisoned lead laced water in multiple cities and states? Bill Gates has been vocal in the past about population control, and this type of financing could get the job done.
Alarms and Red flags should go off whenever vaccines become topic of conversation. I truly believe many vaccines, especially newly developed ones are not being made to save lives, but actually eradicate them. Bill had his hands in the mix with the now popular Zika Virus, and now he wants to go to Africa and work on Malaria. Fishy fishy fishy at best. Read the article below for more information. You be the judge.
Britain’s finance minister and tech billionaire Bill Gates unveiled Monday a plan to spend billions to eradicate “the world’s deadliest killer” malaria.
Chancellor George Osborne and Gates announced $4-billion in funding over the next five years for research and to support efforts to eliminate the mosquito-borne disease, in a joint article in The Times.
“When it comes to human tragedy, no creature comes close to the devastation caused by the mosquito,” the two wrote.
“We both believe that a malaria-free world has to be one of the highest global health priorities.”
The fund would be made up of $712-million a year from Britain’s overseas aid budget for the next five years, as well as $200 million this year from The Gates Foundation, with more donations to follow.
Efforts to control the disease have made significant progress in the last 15 years, but are threatened by the spread of resistance to antimalarial drugs and to insecticide, the WHO said in its World Malaria Report 2015.
“If new insecticides are not introduced by 2020, the situation will become critical and deaths could surge,” Osborne and Gates wrote, adding that fighting diseases required collaboration between private companies, governments and charities.
“We are optimistic that in our lifetimes we can eradicate malaria and other deadly tropical diseases, and confront emerging threats, making the world a safer place for all,” the article concluded.
Microsoft co-founder Gates has turned his attention from software to fighting disease and other ills around the world with his wife, under the auspices of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The charity has disbursed more than $28 billion and provided funding for the world’s most clinically advanced malaria vaccine, Mosquirix developed by GlaxoSmithKline.
Mosquirix, or RTS,S, is the first malaria vaccine to reach Phase III clinical testing — the final stage before market approval — and the first to be assessed by regulators. It received a nod from European regulators in July.
A WHO expert panel in October recommended pilot roll-outs of the vaccine to young children in several areas of sub-Saharan Africa, before considering wider use.
The WHO is expected to follow the panel’s recommendations, which could result in Mosquirix becoming the first licensed vaccine against a parasitic disease. But a decision still lies a way off.
In April last year, the results of a years-long trial with 15,500 children in seven African countries were published in The Lancet medical journal — announcing mixed success.
Only around a third of the children who received the vaccine were protected for the full duration of the trial, researchers found.
But even so, the vaccine has the potential to prevent millions of cases and could save thousands of lives.
The new announcement comes days after the philanthropist Gates revealed plans for a $100 million scheme to cut malnutrition in Nigeria.
