Mark Zuckerberg’s Wife Does Something Amazing (Images)

While objectively $3 billion is a large amount, CZI’s pledge does not radically alter the balance of global health investments. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation finds that donors pledged $36.4 billion for global health in 2015. If we assume that this funding remains flat and CZI allocates its funding in equal portions of $300 million each year, CZI’s pledge is less than 1 percent of total funding. Economist Charles Kenny points out that the world spends $7 trillion each year on health, totaling “more than 23,000 times the size of the annual Chan-Zuckerberg investment.” But despite that, we don’t think that the contribution that Zuckerberg and his wife has made to the resolve the issues of the health globally can be under estimated because there are many people who don’t even think about such issues even when they have the resources to make the world a better place.
