Achieving Global Vaccine Equity for COVID-19
Policy Priorities to Address Global Vaccine Distribution and Supply Gaps
The second wave of COVID-19 in India and other low- and middle-income countries has highlighted the tragic consequences of inequitable access to COVID-19 vaccines. As high-income countries achieve higher vaccination coverage, limited access to vaccines in low- and middle-income countries can lead to substantial loss of life and make it much harder to bring an end to the pandemic. Join our expert panel as they discuss what the U.S. and other wealthy nations can do in the short-term to increase global access to COVID-19 vaccines, and how the U.S. must alter its response to meet current COVID-19 needs and future pandemic preparedness goals.
