"Meet The Most Influential Poverty Fighter You've Never Heard Of" - NPR. 04/06/2016.

Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, a former oil company executive who left his job more than 40 years ago to found the world’s largest nongovernmental development organization in Bangladesh, was given the University of Michigan’s Thomas Francis Jr. Medal for global public health on 4/6/2016. Abed says that solutions to end human poverty – many of them simple – abound. But delivery mechanisms are sorely missing. “In global development, it is not the lack of new, bright ideas that is impeding progress, rather it is our ability to implement these ideas well, effectively, and at scale.”
