S2E1 Covid-19: How can we democratize vaccine access?

Democracy in Question

 

Covid-19 vaccines have been developed in record time and are being distributed around the world. But issues like vaccine hesitancy, slow production and unequal access between as well as within countries are inhibiting the global vaccination progress needed to combat the pandemic. In this first episode of season 2, we’re joined by Dr. Suerie Moon (Graduate Institute) to explore how vaccine nationalism and patents pose obstacles to increasing vaccine production. She discusses how Covid 19 has exacerbated existing inequalities and how vaccine access could be democratized.
