The Gates Foundation

Updated: Apr 25, 2019



"The 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study funded by the Gates Foundation found (Published: Dec 13, 2012) —much to the surprise of many—that neither cancer nor diabetes were the biggest problems as far as the global burden of disease…it was spine impairment.”

And,

The leaders of the North American Spine Society (NASS) cited a recent Gates Foundation report as they announced the new North American Spine Foundation (NASF). Says Michael Reed, the executive director of the newly launched the foundation, “The #1 disease burden, worldwide, with respect to economic and social impact, is now low back pain (neck pain is #4). Combined, low back pain and neck pain outpace diabetes, cancer, cardiac, and mental health problems with respect to years lived with disability. Care fragmentation and this growing spine disability crisis have created an imperative for change; an imperative that will require widespread collaboration and unified action.” January 5th, 2015

With adequate initial funding (please see the Blog Post on SHAREHOLDER FINANCING $300k Goal on this web-page) I will pursue foundation financing with the The Gates Foundation which funded the 2010 Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study whose result was, as stated above.

In addition to the Gates Foundation, Mekanika is looking to syndicate with the MacArthur Foundation, Lever for Change, the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, the Bridgespan Group; again, the only thing slowing us down right now is funding, for travel, meetings, etc.,
