  • I am a living proof that Chief Dr Lebo herbal WORKS and can be incredibly useful to couples with infertility issues. My husband and I found out I was pregnant after over 6 years of desperately trying. We were both checked but the doctors could find nothing. I prayed and prayed, Fasted but nothing happened. I ordered for Chief Dr Lebo herbal medication after hearing numerous success stories of other women using his recommendations. As soon as I started implementing the instructions, including doing some acupuncture with his guidance, I could see a dramatic improvement of my health within days and within 2 months we had a new little one on the way! I have gone through years of disappointment never believing it could happen to. It did.

 HOW MUCH? 1! LEARN MORE
  7. 7. We need to make hard decisions about who we help and who we don’t; that means thinking about how much benefit is provided by different activities. The quality-adjusted life year allows us to compare the impact of different 
 sorts of health programs. OUTCOME LEARN MORE

 THE MOST EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN DO? 2! LEARN MORE
  9. 9. The very best health and education programs are hundreds of times better than “merely” very good programs. For example, smallpox eradication did so much 
 good that it alone shows development aid to be

  11. 11. Natural disasters get far more funding than ongoing causes of death and suffering such as disease; for that reason, disaster relief usually isn’t the most effective use of funds. Diseases, like malaria, that affect people in the developing world, get far less funding than conditions like cancer; for that reason you have a much bigger 
 impact treating people with 
 malaria than with cancer. NEED LEARN MORE

 would have happened 
 anyway. LEARN MORE

  15. 15. REWARDSome activities—such as voting, entering politics, campaigning for systemic change, or mitigating risks of global catastrophe—are effective not because they’re likely to make a difference 
 but because their impact 
 is so great if they do 
 make a difference. LEARN MORE
