Chairman

Through a Pune-based factory run by his privately owned Serum Institute of India, the “vaccine king of India” produces one billion doses of high-quality, affordable vaccines annually. In 2013, the 73-year-old joined the fight against polio by making the vaccine available to Unicef at a subsidised rate. Poonawalla’s efforts to make vaccines accessible to all have won accolades from Bill Gates and more recently, Prince Charles.
