@dlknowles This comment reminds me of time Jamie Oliver made a paella with chorizo. They still talk about that in Spain. (Secretly probably nothing but they train for like 3 years to cut it so probably don’t want to offend them)
To put into context Mali currently spends just $108/capita on healthcare. So $8/year more for all babies is significant.
Great results but would seem to require big increase in healthcare spending to achieve. Will/can Mali’s government do that? Reminds me of Liberia’s education pilot. Money poured into schools which then start getting great results, but no more $ to roll out nationwide.  https://twitter.com/guardianafrica/status/974547077387579393
