Microsoft mogul Bill Gates says cell-phone technology could be used to register every birth around the globe and track children to make sure they have been vaccinated as government advisers urge.
The massive effort was discussed by Gates at a recent mHealth Summit, which delved into the issues of technology and health.
According to a report today from Natural News, Gates told a conference late last year that the goal is a lower population, and using vaccines to improve early childhood health is a step in that direction.
“That sounds paradoxical,” he said. “The fact is that within a decade of improving health outcomes, parents decide to have [fewer] children.”
The SmartPlanet blog earlier documented the comments, explaining Gates said that if every worldwide birth could be registered on a cell phone, authorities could ensure that children get the correct vaccinations.
He said the cell-phone technology now available should be put to use for health purposes, when and where it can.
“If you could register every birth on the cell phone, get fingerprints, get a location, then you could take the systems where you go around and make sure the immunizations happen,” he said. “Run them in a more effective way.”
He said the vaccines that are available today – if they just would be delivered and administered to those who are in need – could make a significant difference in the world’s health and population.
He said there are about 8.5 million annual deaths among children from birth to age 5, down from 20 million in 1960. He said a third of the improvement has come from better food and housing conditions, but the majority of the improvement is from vaccinations.
Gates said tracking systems also could allow phone messages to parents so they bring their children in for vaccinations on a timely basis. He also said the goal of reducing the population is imperative, as problems with the environment, schools, nutrition and societal unrest “are insoluable at a growth rate of 3 percent per year.”
“There will be no trees, animals, schools, jobs … nobody can handle that type of situation,” he said.
According to Natural News, Gates’ plan is to use cell phones to record each birth and send data, including biometric identifiers, to authorities. Then they would send reminders to parents’ phones when vaccinations are due.
He said Nigeria or northern India would be good places to start, since vaccination rates there are around 50 percent.
The report said such plans conceivably could involve using GPS devices inside the phones to track parents who do not bring their children in for vaccinations.
According to the Smart Planet report, Gates also believes there cannot be a healthy, high-population growth civilization.
“If you’re healthy,” he said, “You’re low-population growth.”
“Gates’ messianic control complex keeps getting scarier and scarier. Vaccines are toxic to the human body and in particular SUPPRESS immune function, proven by studies that the vaccine ‘benefit’ is nonexistent. Shouldn’t Mr. Gates … spend his vast wealth on actually providing people with real clean uncontaminated food and water?” said one participant on the Smart Planet’s forum page.
WND previously reported when Gates commented at the Technology, Entertainment and Design 2010 Conference in Long Beach, Calif., on the world’s population.
He said, “Let’s take a look. First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent” [Emphasis added].

WND reported in May 2009 when Gates joined some of the richest men and women in the world meeting secretly in New York to conspire on using their vast wealth to bring the world’s population growth under control.
In addition to Gates, the meeting included some of the biggest names in the “billionaires club,” according to the London Times – David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, George Soros and Michael Bloomberg.
In February 2009, Gates also discussed population control.
“Official projections say the world’s population will peak at 9.3 billion [up from 6.6 billion today] but with charitable initiatives, such as better reproductive health care, we think we can cap that at 8.3 billion,” he said.
