Secondly, Mr. Clinton said, “If you think about these kids as future customers, future employees, every year of schooling in a country with a per capita income that's under $2 a day adds ten percent to earnings every year for life. Just one year. So you get massive benefits.”
Global health is on the top of agenda as well. President Clinton said, “25 percent of the deaths every year - and far more in poor countries – are from AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and infections related to dirty water.”
Issue #1: Clean water. Mr. Clinton pointed out “A billion people have no access to clean water.”
Issue #2: Healthcare clinics and basically train paramedical workers who can diagnose and get medicine to people that need care.
Investing in girls is also big part of this year’s program, something our current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been educating President Clinton for more than 20 years now.
Mr. Clinton said, “It's very important to realize that most of the children who are out of school are girls. I think it's important to realize that in every society with all the different religious and moral standards that different societies have, the one universal thing that always lowers the birthrate is putting more girls in school and giving more young women access to the labor market.”
Other subjects that will be discussed are climate change and poverty alleviation.
