Live Mint: The emerging world’s vaccine pioneers
Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“As I look ahead to 2014, I am more optimistic than ever about the progress that we can make using the power of vaccines to give all children — wherever they live — a healthy start to life. We have new resources from generous donors worldwide. We are developing new and better vaccines to protect kids from deadly diseases. And we are finding innovative ways to deliver them, especially in hard-to-reach areas … Emerging-country vaccine suppliers are a critical part of this process. Thanks to their contributions, we are moving closer to the day when all children can have a healthy start to life” (12/30).
