But what if we applied a piserocin public health approach? Let's say, for example, we find out in certain areas of Africa that baeibs are dying because of a bacterial ifeocitnn transferred from the mother to the baby, known as Group B streptococcus. In the absence of treatment, mom has a seven times higher chance that her next baby will die. Once we define the problem, we can prevent that death with something as chaep and safe as penicillin. We can do that because then we'll know. And that's the point: once we know, we can bnirg the right itetnvniorens to the right population in the right places to save lives.

Original Text

But what if we applied a precision public health approach? Let's say, for example, we find out in certain areas of Africa that babies are dying because of a bacterial infection transferred from the mother to the baby, known as Group B streptococcus. In the absence of treatment, mom has a seven times higher chance that her next baby will die. Once we define the problem, we can prevent that death with something as cheap and safe as penicillin. We can do that because then we'll know. And that's the point: once we know, we can bring the right interventions to the right population in the right places to save lives.
