"We must act fast. Vaccine production must be scaled up. Licences must be made available. Affordability must be guaranteed for all. The #COVID19 vaccines must be a global public good," says @antonioguterres at @wef.

4⃣ Organise social, labour and fiscal policy to tackle the inequalities which drive vulnerabilities.

"Health has shown us that we have to fix economic rules in order to give everyone their right to health," says @Winnie_Byanyima.

3⃣ Organise health financing through tax-funded public provision.

"Countries that have achieved #UHC and that have provided the right to health to their citizens have done it mostly through publicly funded money," says @Winnie_Byanyima.

.@Winnie_Byanyima highlights four essential steps to build an economy that can beat pandemics:

1⃣ Health technologies must be global public goods.

 4  1  1

2⃣ Organise the int'l financial architecture so that it enables countries to address the health and social needs of their people.

"Before the #COVID19 crisis, 4 out of 5 low-income countries were already spending more on debt repayments than on health," says @Winnie_Byanyima.

"Without supporting initiatives such as #CTAP or #TRIPSwaiver, we risk repeating the painful lessons from the early AIDS response when ppl in rich countries had access to HIV treatment while millions of ppl in poor countries died," says @Winnie_Byanyima during @UNCTAD event.

"A small group of rich nations representing just 14% of the global population have bought up most of the supply of #COVID19 vaccines. Sometimes 4 or 5 times more than their countries need. This is so inefficient and so immoral!" says @Winnie_Byanyima.

"A key lesson from the AIDS response, and that we are seeing again in the #COVID19 response, is that only if the world comes together and takes global, bold action can we lift ourselves out of this crisis," says @Winnie_Byanyima.

"40 million #COVID19 vaccine doses have been administered in 49 higher income countries. Just 50 doses have been rolled out in the lowest income countries. That is inequality," says @Winnie_Byanyima during an @UNCTAD panel discussion on systemic issues in the global economy.

@Winnie_Byanyima will join the discussion & ask Min. Hancock about the role of the G7 in global health.

In this interview with @BBCWorld, UNAIDS Executive Director @Winnie_Byanyima calls for a #PeoplesVaccine, urging pharma companies to learn from the lessons of the AIDS response and not to be driven by the desire for super profits.

 1,415  2  61

As we learnt from the HIV response, pharma monopolies cost lives.

Pharmaceutical companies must make vaccines, diagnostics and treatments available for all.

We must have a #PeoplesVaccine, not a profit vaccine 👉🏾
