A discussion of the global solutions for the global challenges of COVID
Even as the US and Europe see a reduction in COVID cases due to vaccines, new COVID-19 waves are enveloping developing economies worldwide, including India, South East Asia, South America, Africa, and the Pacific. While developed countries stockpile vaccines, low-income countries have received just 1.3% of all COVID-19 vaccine doses administered globally. In addition to emerging, contagious variants, failure to equally distribute vaccines risks prolonging epidemiological, economic, and social disruption for all countries.
Our expert panel, chaired by Prof Nathan Grills (Senior Research Advisor at Australia India Institute; Public Health Physician at Nossal Institute), will discuss the challenge, and the importance, of providing equitable interventions and explore various solutions to face this global challenge together.
