Catch up on the MDGs with Gates’ global health blog series

The U.N. Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is less than two weeks away, so what better way to jump into the issues than by – hmm – reading up on them?

This week, Melinda French Gates of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is blogging about the MDGs in advance of their TEDxChange event, which looks into the future of global health and development.

So far, she has posted three fantastic pieces on breastfeeding, malaria and immunization. As always, her blog posts are filled with personal stories, interesting facts and figures and a refreshing sense of optimism.

Take a look at her posts on the Foundation Blog and be sure to leave a comment. Keeping the conversation going on important global health issues like these will help ensure that extreme poverty is at the forefront of our minds.
