On January 27 at the World Economic Forum in Davos I asked Bill Gates for help. Help to speed up provision of courses on Global Health at universities around the world. I gave him a copy of our Textbook on Global Health (see below). He rightly noted that it was the first of its kind and that fact based overviews of the global health situations are badly needed.
On February 7 I got this note from our publisher Studentlitteratur: "Här kommer lite glada nyheter om Global Health. Dessutom har Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation köpt 200 ex som deras personal ska läsa!"
Gates Foundation had bought 200 copies, one each for the staff!
