Anti Poverty Saves Lives

According to Nicholas Kristof's article in the NY Times, 9/22/10, antipoverty work saves around 32,000 lives each day...based on the calculation of how many children died in 1960 (20 million) and the number dying now (about 8 million a year).

Twelve million lives are saved annually...roughly one every three seconds gives us some hope regarding the effectiveness of anti-poverty programs.
