The COVID-19 Vaccine Should Be A Global Public Good

By |2021-05-05T17:34:03+00:00May 5th, 2021|POSITION STATEMENTS|

We can be certain about one thing when it comes to the pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus: the only way to solve global problems is by coming up with global solutions. The rapid spread of the virus across the world during the first few months of 2020 highlighted the intrinsic ways the world is interconnected, the illusory nature of borders, and the shortcomings of local solutions to planet-wide problems. By the end of April 2021, over 130 million people around the world contracted COVID-19 and nearly 3 million died from it. Thirty percent of COVID-related deaths occurred in Latin America.

The search for a vaccine

By |2020-11-12T21:13:24+00:00November 12th, 2020|Explanatory Capsules|

As Latin-American countries have started easing down on the lockdown measures, the chance for a second wave of infection demands strict and rational control policies to keep fatalities minimized. A part of the hopes of the population to return to normality centers on the development of a vaccine that provides immunity, because despite the fact that a typical vaccine takes years to be developed, those that are being designed for this pandemic advance to a pace never seen before. However, for both the scientific community and public health officials, deciding when a vaccine will be ready for mass release to the public is a delicate balancing act.
