UNESCO Literacy Prize

Literacy projects in China, the United States, Nigeria, Senegal and the United Republic of Tanzania are the winners of the five UNESCO Literacy Prizes this year. One of them was awarded to a US organization that partners with health organizations. Good news considering the recent study that found only smoking was a stronger predictor of early death than illiteracy. You can listen to a podcast from Scientific American to hear more about it.
