Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the board chair for The Global Alliance For Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), was a guest on “TIME100 Talks,” where she talked about the role the organization is currently playing in fighting the corona virus.
The Global Alliance For Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) is an alliance of the WHO, UNICEF, the World Bank, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and other organisations and governments. According to Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, the organization seeks to provide vaccines, when they are ready, in an affordable and equitable fashion, so that vulnerable communities can have access to them. The need for this organization stems from the fact that in the past, life-saving vaccines have gone only to the rich, with the poor left behind.
