Latin American countries call for joint efforts to democratize COVID vaccines

The Community of Latin American and Caribbean Nations (CELAC) has expressed the urgent need for both the private sector and governments and international organizations to work together to democratize vaccines against COVID-19.

“It is imperative that (…) we work to achieve fair, equitable, supportive, transparent, timely and universal access to vaccines, diagnostic equipment, drugs and other health technologies against COVID-19,” the agency added a statement by the Mexican media ‘El Universal’.

In this way, the Latin American and Caribbean nations have invited the international community and pharmaceutical companies to join forces to ensure access to doses for the entire world population against the coronavirus, which it regards as a “global public good”.
