This one I get:

The World Health Organization says a vaccine which can prevent a diarrhoea and vomiting virus should be given to all children as a routine vaccination.

Even if it is “too costly,” as some scientists have argued, this vaccine could drastically reduce the hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by diarrhoea, mostly in Africa, every year.

Vaccines make sense. The benefits of eyeglasses may be less intuitive, but, it turns out that’s not unreasonable advice either.

Giving away free glasses is a cheap way of boosting the global economy with billions of dollars lost every year due to visual impairments, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said Tuesday.

Ahhh, I see. Heh.
