At a recent summit, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres told the world “COVID-19 cannot be beaten one country at a time.”
But some nations are still awaiting their first vaccines. And just 0.4% of doses given so far have been administered in lower-income countries.
Cases are surging. Africa has recorded a 43% week-on-week rise in COVID-19 deaths. A worrying and deeply unfair situation which we can all help to change.
What can you do to help?
- If you can, make a contribution to the WHO’s Go Give One campaign, funding vaccines for lower-income countries.
- Use your social media platforms to share #OnlyTogether messages, such as today’s video, and tell world leaders the pandemic is only over when everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 vaccines.
We can all play our part in achieving fair access to vaccines. Your voice, your support and your donations make a huge difference.
We are in a race against the clock and nobody can be left behind.
#OnlyTogether can we end the pandemic
