“We Know the Solutions, But How Do We Deliver Them”

I came across this TED Talk via a Gates Foundation tweet that read: “Saving newborn lives in India: We know the solutions, but how do we deliver them? @http://bit.ly/hSC3pl”

It’s a theme very similar to the first thing I learned about malaria, a curable and preventable disease, from vaccine developer Steve Hoffman in researching The Imaginations of Unreasonable Men. We know the solutions. We don’t know how to make them affordable and how to distribute them to all who need them. The challenges are as much political as they are scientific, for the problems affect those who are so voiceless that there are no markets for solving them.

In this talk Vishwajeet Kumar explains the interventions that reduced neonatal mortality and laif the foundation for other spheres of community development.
