The cost of preventing death...

I recently read this article in some newspaper, quoting Bono, it read...

Did you know, 8 million people die every year for the price of going out with your friends to the movies and buying an ice cream. For $30 per head you could save 8 million lives, Preventable disease - not calamity, not famine, nothing like that. Preventable disease - just for the lack of medicines. That's cheap; that's a bargain.
Bono, singer and activist.

The bit that shocked me was the actual price per head, this is less than £20 per person in the UK, not even a nightout... my dilema is how do we get everybody to part with this amount and which organisation will use it most effectively.
