Scientists and public health experts have made astonishing achievements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, more than a year-and-a-half into the pandemic, the majority of people around the world still don’t have access to many of the health care innovations they need to prevent, detect, and treat COVID-19. For example, only 9 percent of people in low-income countries have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine—compared to 66 percent in high-income countries. Failure to control the virus anywhere threatens health everywhere, and improving global access—regardless of income status—to lifesaving innovations is critical to ending the pandemic.
Despite great global progress against COVID-19, far too many still lack access to the vaccines, tests, and medicines that keep people safe and healthy.
Please join PATH's CEO Nikolaj Gilbert, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (Washington’s 7th District), and Dr. Umair Shah (Washington’s Secretary of Health) for an important conversation about health equity, COVID-19, and the future of pandemic preparedness.
