Vaccination Nation: The Global Vaccination Effort
But around the globe, we’re seeing a very different pandemic reality.
David Miliband, CEO of the International Rescue Committee, writes in “The Independent”:
Pandemic prevention and response is treated as a health issue. The WHO and its accountable body, the World Health Assembly, is made up of health experts. Health ministers lead the work. But pandemics are different than other health issues. Pandemics belong on the desks of presidents, prime ministers and finance ministers. Not just after the pandemic strikes, but before, because pandemics have consequences way beyond health, as we have learnt to our cost.
What should global leadership on COVID-19 look like? And how involved should the U.S. be in the international vaccination effort?
For our monthly vaccine check in, we widen the lens and go global.
