Bringing the pandemic to an end in 2022.
Senior industry leaders will share their insights.
It has been 2 years since COVID-19 first struck, leaving a devastating trail in its wake. A report by the National Bureau of Economic Research has warned that letting the developing world fall behind could cost the global economy US$9 trillion. Although advanced economies have committed to sharing resources, recent figures show that six times as many booster jabs have been given out in high-income countries compared to first jabs in low and mid-income countries.
This digital webinar, hosted by the Financial Times and in partnership with the ONE Campaign, will explore the issues facing the pandemic response in developing countries and what high-income countries can do to accelerate the recovery process in these regions. We will discuss how achieving vaccine parity could be a key driver on the road to recovery for the global pandemic.
