The fairest and most effective way to end the COVID-19 pandemic is to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments. But pharmaceutical company monopolies could leave countries in the global south waiting until 2023 for widespread vaccination.

This event marks the launch of a national campaign by the People’s Vaccine Alliance Ireland—a coalition of Irish organisations, health practitioners, trade unions and activists who have come together to call on the Irish government to take a stand for fairness, equality and global health.

Join us to discuss the issues with Irish and international speakers campaigning for vaccine equity worldwide.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Michael Ryan, Executive Director, WHO Health Emergencies Programme
  • Dr Ciara Conlan, Co Founder of Access to Medicines Ireland
  • Mustaqeem De Gama, South African Permanent Mission to the World Trade Organisation in relatioin to the TRIPS waiver
  • Majo Rivas, Paraguayan-Irish People’s Vaccine activist
  • Senator Alice-Mary Higgins, Irish Independent Politician
  • Isabel Simpson, Executive Director, Médecins Sans Frontières Ireland
  • Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director, UNAIDS.
