Life Expectancy Study – Where you were born determines how long you will live. Bill Gates, speaking at the #Goalkeepers19 event in New York.

“Now, no matter where you’re born you’ll live quite a bit longer than ever before. But, you still see there’s a substantial gap…and that’s just not fair. Being born in a particular location shouldn’t be the thing that determines how long you live” –  Bill Gates, #Goalkeepers19

Target = Progress + Equality

Our target is to make sure that we all keep progressing as the human species and close the gap between the highest life expectancy and lowest. The only way of closing the gap is strictly increasing the life expectancy of the areas where its low.
