Covid-19 underscored the stark reality of large and growing inequalities worldwide to access to healthcare and health products, specialists from the World Health Organization (WHO) warned.

Per each 100 people living in high-income countries, 133 Covid-19 vaccine doses were administered, while only four per each 100 in low-income countries, experts said.

However, the world continues to follow the same economic paradigm that does not switch the underlying financial structure and applies outdated thinking about economic development.

‘Although health systems lack sufficient resources, more funding is not the only solution,’ said Professor Mariana Mazzucato.

Our work emphasized the need to radically reform finance so that the health-for-all goal is designed in financial structures, conditionalities and alliances between companies and the State, Mazzucato remarked.

A new report on financing health for all called now, more than ever, for a clear and ambitious goals to focus investment on health sector.
