Read and Weep

LONDON (AP) - The lives of six million children under five could be saved every year if flu shots and other low-cost measures to prevent or treat disease were more widely used, global health experts say.

If there was a buck to be made saving kids lives, I guess globalization would take care of this.

I don't see where improving women's health has to reduce the moves toward children's health but the article seems to indicate this. Yes, healthy mothers have healthier babies, proper maternal care is important but so is basic care for the child. These things should be being worked on together, not one at the expense of the other.

whenever i hear "preventable diseases" espoused i cringe. our apathy, intransigence, nihilism have silenced our conscience and made us complicit actors in the “mass genocide”. first world capitalist expansion (colonialism, neo-liberal imperialism) have facilitated third world FUCKDOM which is the perpetual cycle of poverty, famine, war and tragic death.
