But I thought their health care was so much better than ours
Dozens of developing countries exaggerated figures on how many children were vaccinated against deadly diseases, which allowed them to get more money from U.N.-sponsored programs, a new study said Friday.
Murray and colleagues estimated that the alliance should have paid countries $150 million. Instead, it paid them $290 million.
Some countries, including Liberia, Pakistan and Zambia, reported vaccination numbers more than four times higher than surveys showed.
Experts said the study raised questions about the credibility of other health data from the United Nations and countries.
