Director of Health and Women's Safety Programs
Opportunity International Australia
As India grappled with an unprecedented COVID-19 humanitarian crisis in 2021, those living in poverty were among the most affected. In response, Annie established innovative public-private partnerships between established community microfinance networks and Indian state governments to deliver mass vaccination camps, serving rural, remote and marginalised communities. Annie collaborated with the Opportunity International Network raising over $2 million for relief work. So far, close to 4 million people have received vaccines through these camps.
Annie is passionate about addressing ‘medical impoverishment’ and has made a significant contribution in protecting the lives of those in poverty.
