Leave No One Behind: Vaccine Equity in the Global South

Tuesday, June 15, 2021 11:30 AM - Tuesday, June 15, 2021 01:00 PM

Hands together

Join us for a discussion on the barriers that the world’s poorest people face when trying to access COVID-19 vaccines. Featuring internationally renowned speakers: Fr. Charles Chilufya, SJ; Dr. Sunita Narain; Dr. Katrina Plamondon; and Dr. Jeffrey Sachs.

With only 0.1 per cent of people in low-income countries vaccinated, COVID-19 has revealed the inequalities between the Global North and the Global South. Canadian Jesuits International supports the global campaign for vaccine equity through a waiver of certain provisions of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement at the World Trade Organization (WTO).
