It seems as if Bill will commit to improve immunization over the next ten-years, this commitment will apparently cost Bill around $10 billion, Bill wants the next 10 years to become “the decade of the vaccine”.

This $10 billion is said to be the largest ever single charitable pledge, Bill did admit to being impatient, however being impatient in regards to changing global health must be admired.
