    Vaccine inequity undermines global economy recovery, WHO, UNDP and Oxford University

    “Vaccine inequity is the world’s biggest obstacle to ending this pandemic and recovering from COVID-19,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization.

    COVID-19 vaccine inequity will have a lasting and profound impact on socio-economic recovery in low and lower-middle-income countries without urgent action to boost supply and assure equitable access for every country, including through dose sharing, according to new data released today by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the University of Oxford.
