The search for a vaccine

By |2020-11-12T21:13:24-03:00November 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.

The five-year strategic objective of the programme is “By 2025, local civil society groups have claimed a central role as empowered innovators, facilitators and advocates of climate solutions”. Our programme is about climate justice i.e. climate change is not only an environmental problem to be addressed but also a societal challenge with ethical and human rights aspects. Hence our intention is to build wide societal support for locally shaped climate solutions through an inclusive and rights-based approach. This includes building a broad-based climate alliance at country level, bridging divides (urban-rural, gender, youth), that amplifies voices in new, unusual ways.
