Gates Vaccine Innovation Award for Nitish Kumar

The Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation will award Bihar Chief Minister the first Gates Vaccine Innovation Award. The Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation has accepted a proposal to confer the Gates Innovation Award on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for the first Gates Vaccine Innovation Award.


The award will come at a time when immunization programs in Bihar have greatly improved in the recent times and no polio cases were reported in Bihar in the last 15 months.

Great Work Nitish ji and kudos to your team that made this happen.

More details can be found in the Indiawest article Bihar CM Nitish Kumar to Receive Gates Foundation's Innovation Award.

    Just a clarification. Award has not yet been conferred. He has been nominated . They asked for willingness of CM Bihar which after getting necessary political clearance has been communicated to the Foundation India Office. Now the Foundation will decide about the award.

    Regards,
    Alok CHATURVEDI
