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.

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).
