Notimex

I have recently worked with Gabriela Sotomayor, journalist for the Mexican news agency Notimex (www.notimex.com.mx). It has been very interesting with first photographing at the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction. Amongst the speakers were where UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the Head of Government of the Federal District (Mexico)Marcelo Luis Ebrard Casaubón.

Then the other day, WHO had its sixty-fourth world health assembly and amongst the speakers were Bill Gates, the Health Minister of Mexico Dr. Jose Angel Cordova and the Director- General of the WHO Dr. Margaret Chan. Bill Gates was on behalf of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation calling for more political and financial support so that "by 2020, we can prevent 10 million deaths".
