International screen diva, Priyanka Chopra attended the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum yesterday and took to social media to share a few moments from the event. Being the Global Citizen ambassador, she was there to address the world leaders about critical issues like extreme poverty, climate change and inequity.
One of the pictures she shared was a picture with Nigeria’s former minister of finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who is the board chairperson at Gavi, a public–private global health partnership committed to increasing access to immunisation in poor countries. She wrote, ‘Dr. Ngozi on behalf of Gavi has vaccinated 86% of the world’s children and has saved over 13 million lives since 2000. She is truly doing God’s work. Dr. Ngozi is an economist, international development expert and the Chair of @gavialliance – an incredible organization that has helped immunize more than 760 million children and saved 13 million lives. The proof is in the numbers, and it”s evident that with organizations like Gavi and its amazing partners like @unicef and @who, we can eradicate extreme poverty. #Davos2020”
