Bill and Melinda Gates show that data matters. The world has been on an incredible path of progress – in our lifetimes we have witnessed the biggest decrease in poverty, disease and child deaths.

The roadshow will be held in 7 cities within five different islands: Banjarmasin (South Kalimantan), Makassar (South Sulawesi), Denpasar (Bali), Surabaya (East Java), Yogyakarta (DIY), Jambi (Jambi), and Palembang (South Sumatera).
