Vaccine equity: the defining challenge of our times
COVID-19 has had a huge impact across the world. Over the past twelve months it has become clear that we need to use all legal and public health tools available to get vaccines to those who need them most as swiftly as we can.
Some, however, suggest that limited vaccine supplies are being allocated based on wealth and geography, rather than by science, public health, or human need. The issues of vaccine distribution and “vaccine nationalism" are substantial and highly controversial.
Join us to hear from Dr Peter Singer, Special Advisor to the Director General and Assistant Director General of the World Health Organization, to speak about vaccine equity as the defining challenge of our times.
This event is co-hosted by the Intellectual Forum at Jesus College, the Global Health Security Network, Australian National University, Cambridge Public Health and the University of Cambridge ThinkLab.
