Covid-19 Vaccine: No One Is Safe Until Everyone Is Safe

Since the time when vaccines against Covid-19 were a hope, rather than a reality, the World Health Organization (WHO) has sounded the call for equitable access to vaccines to everyone in the world. Covax, a global pooled procurement mechanism for Covid-19 vaccines, is a tool in that process. WHO closely partners with the Africa Centres for Disease Control to fight the pandemic. 

Dr. Ifeanyi M. Nsofor argues that controlling the pandemic will take more - a continent-wide movement of people power to press African governments to demand fair distribution. Equity is in everyone's interest. African health experts agree with WHO that until everyone is safe, no one is.
