Bollywood actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra, was part of a seminar on Preventing Anaemia among adolescents and the Intergenerational cycle of under-nutrition. The interactive conference was held in Indian city Bhopal on the 2nd of July 2015.
The actress not only spoke to the media but also interacted with several adolescents to educate them about anaemia and its prevention. For the event, she came dressed in a subtle white salwar kameez that she styled with strap heels. Her make-up was also toned down with earthy red lips and hair done in beachy waves. Restrained, elegant and perfectly dressed for the occasion, Priyanka looked good.

During the conference, the actress highlighted the importance of health in young people for them to be able to contribute to the country’s progress and development. It was alarming, she said, that more than 50 % of boys and girls in India are anaemic and thus, not growing physically and mentally as they should.
Priyanka also spoke about the weekly iron folic acid supplementation (WIFS) programme by the Government of India. It is a blue pill (iron folic acid tablet) to be had every week along with a balanced nutritious diet.
