Happening in the World: Cameroon has started the world’s first malaria mass vaccine rollout. Infants under six months will receive the vaccine for free, encouraging parents to continue with the four doses needed. Similar pilot programs in Kenya, Ghana, and Malawi showed a 13% decrease in deaths of children. While the vaccine is not completely effective, the prevalence of the disease among children means that this program could save thousands of lives. (BBC)

Happening in NYC: New York City is launching a plan to help eliminate medical debt for low-income residents. The program, which will be run by the non-profit RIP Medical Debt, could help to alleviate $2 billion of debt, which disproportionately affects Black and Latino New Yorkers. Participants in the program must have an income no more than 400% of the federal poverty level, or their debt must equal 5% or more of their income. Under this plan, RIP Medical Debt will take advantage of the for-profit model of third-party debt sellers by buying up bundled debt. (Gothamist)
