Posted By: PRChannel Team – Gibraltar

How do we go forward with the global distribution of covid-19 vaccines and what kind of geopolitical implications do surround this endeavour? By Gunilla Carlsson & Anthony Dworkin (Senior Policy Fellow)

As Europe is in the middle of the second wave of the covid-19 pandemic, everyone hopes that a vaccine will put an end to it and thereby stop raising the death tolls and repeating lockdowns. 

In this week’s episode, Anthony Dworkin takes over the podcast to talk to Gunilla Carlsson, ECFR Council member and Vice-Chair of the Global Fund Strategy Committee, and Ilona Kickbusch, founding director and chair of the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva about the global distribution of covid-19 vaccines and the geopolitics surrounding this. 

What are upcoming challenges for the COVAX initiative? How should we expect European countries to balance their commitment to protecting their own populations vs global responsibilities?
