Melinda Gates, Nicholas Kristof Answer Readers’ Questions About Development Issues

Last week in a Huffington Post “Impact” blog post, Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, asked readers to submit questions about her recent trip to Bangladesh. In this post in New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof’s “On the Ground” blog, Kristof and Gates answer readers’ questions about development issues in the region. Questions address ways in which those with limited resources can help women around the world, how to factor in unintended consequences — such as rapid population growth — of global health programs, and investing in health versus other sectors (1/9).
