Navigating the complexities around a COVID-19 vaccine in Africa

“At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, African countries implemented social distancing measures that have helped reduce the spread of the virus. At the same time, the pandemic and many of the associated policies to protect people’s health pulled many households on the continent into poverty and the sub-Saharan region into a recession. These complex challenges now affect the ability of African countries to finance vaccine procurement and delivery, which are necessary to end the pandemic.”
