Data published by the UN Development Program (UNDP), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the University of Oxford said that the most hit countries will be the low- and lower-middle-income ones.

These three entities also stated that global economic recovery is in danger if vaccine manufacturing, expansion and distribution is not conducted in a balanced, fair way. Publishing assessments on equity in Covid-19 immunization, the entities specified that if vaccine production and distribution to poor nations are accelerated, these nations could add US$38 billion to their economies this year.

It´s time to quickly guarantee vaccine doses, remove barriers to increased vaccine manufacturing and to secure financial support to distribute them equitably in order to attain a real global economic recovery.

Underdeveloped countries need access to vaccines at sustainable prices and financial support to be timely, because it is not only essential to save lives, but also to boost a faster and fairer economic recovery for the benefit of all.
