A vaccine against COVID-19 is humanity’s best shot at ending this painful pandemic. But how can we ensure that a vaccine is available to all people, all countries, free of charge?
We talk about the need for a #PeoplesVaccine, what to do about the big pharma monopolies and vaccine nationalism that stand in the way and what we can learn from iconic struggles to fight for access to medicines like the victories by HIV/AIDS activists.
Nabil and Max speak to two amazing activist-advocates with a fascinating and powerful track record in the fight for access to medicines, Achal Prabhala (fellow at the Shuttleworth Foundation and coordinator of the accessibsa project) and Dr Mohga Kamal-Yanni.
