COVID-19 Vaccine:Partnerships Towards Accelerating Access
By Africa Health Business
Introduction to Discussion
The amount of money spent in Africa on infant vaccines stands at 10% or less. We end
up having to depend on GAVI and others for essential vaccines that have been put
into our health systems. If vaccines were not supported by donors, what would be the
penetration of vaccines to the children of low- and middle-income countries? When it
comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, economics and finances will also play an integral role.
We are looking at equitable distribution and saving lives, which will only be possible if we
have the money we need. We need to ensure that we have appropriate financing.
