Newsweek Q&A With Bill And Melinda Gates

November 3, 2009

Newsweek interviewed Bill and Melinda Gates last week during their visit to Washington, D.C., for their foundation's Living Proof Project. In response to a question about the most pressing health issue facing developing countries, Melinda Gates said there has been "amazing progress on the deaths of children under 5. But we have not made much progress on deaths in children within the first 30 days of life. ... Saving these children would not be that difficult. A lot of it is cultural. We need to educate the mothers." Issues covered in the Q&A include the recent HIV vaccine trial in Thailand and President Barack Obama's global health plan (Guo, 10/31).
