The coronavirus pandemic continues to have severe consequences, especially on the poorest and most vulnerable populations. Accelerating the rate at which all people are vaccinated is the key to ending the pandemic and reducing harm.
According to research from Northeastern University, 61% of deaths globally could be averted if an effective vaccine were distributed to all countries proportional to their populations. While many wealthy countries have made significant inroads into vaccinating their citizens, this is not the case in less-developed countries.
The Love Beyond Borders campaign will support COVAX’s initiative to equitably distribute vaccines around the world.
