Covid-19 vaccines: the new apartheid?
Moderated by Dr. Dale McKinley from ILRIG, the three panelists were:
Fatima Hassan - Health Justice Initiative
Dr. Lydia Cairncross - People’s Health Movement
Dr. Benjamin Kagina - Vaccines for Africa Initiative
The panelists covered a lot of ground, focusing among other things on:
the global picture of vaccine distribution, financing and inequalities;
the South African specific situation with vaccine procurement and roll out plans; and
the key sources of and responses to, vaccine scepticism and opposition.
There was a lively and extensive set of questions and comments from webinar participants. Overall, this impressive and timely webinar provided a wealth of pertinent information and grounded, activist perspectives as part of the South African and international struggle for equitable, free and accessible Covid-19 vaccines.
