Hub Cymru Africa - COVID-19 Vaccine Equity: Lessons learned so far
Time & Location
About the Event
Hub Cymru Africa - "Join us to hear health workers share their experiences of supporting COVID-19 vaccine roll out in a number of countries across the globe. This session aims to inform, encourage and support advocacy in relation to equitable distribution of vaccines across the world and to inform and support effective delivery of vaccines ‘on the ground’ as part of a wider programme of COVID prevention and early recognition in resource poor communities.
The session will cover several topics including setting the scene of the global vaccine roll out, what some of the issues are and some myth busters. We will look at the pros and cons of different potential global vaccination policies, where the vaccine ‘sits’ as part of the COVID prevention strategies and here health worker’s direct experiences of ensuring an equitable roll out to the populations they work with. We are hoping to have contributions from Wales, India and Lesotho.
Speakers: • Dr Gill Richardson, Assistant Director of Policy and International Health, PHW • Other speakers to be confirmed soon!"
