Raising questions about award to Gates Foundation

Matt Hanley has an intelligent and balanced article at Mercator.net, critical of the granting of the Lasker award for Public Health Service to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. (The gates open to a Nobel Prize)

Essentially, the work of the Gates Foundation, some of which is of great benefit, is marred by their dogged adherence to the promotion of "reproductive health" with "family planning" as the number one priority. Hanley suggests that it is this underlying impulse that is being rewarded as much as the good works.
