Europe, a partner to anti-COVID vaccination in Africa


Two years on from the start of the pandemic, what is the state of play with vaccine (in)equity? This question will be addressed at the Summit between the European Union and the African Union on 17 and 18 February in Brussels. It will be an opportunity for African leaders to express their frustrations regarding European avarice for vaccines. EU leaders will be able to remind them of the many initiatives launched to assist their major partner. The Summit will also look towards the future and present the measures to strengthen health system resilience in Africa and its human, socio-economic and industrial capacity to combat future pandemics.
