To get out of the health and economic crisis associated with coronaviruses, voices are being raised in favor of greater solidarity and vaccine cooperation globally.
Alone we move fast. The United Kingdom has passed the milestone of 15 million doses of the administered Kovid-19 vaccine. But now, the vaccination campaign is far from moving at the same pace everywhere in the world. On Monday, the British government reiterated its support for the Kovacs program, of which the United Kingdom is one of the largest donors.
The Kovacs initiative was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) at the onset of the coronavirus epidemic. The purpose of this tool is to vaccinate the entire planet at the same time to prevent equal access to dosages and increase in prices. This vaccine is based on diplomatic cooperation and a global effort.

In-person agreements were made with the laboratories, while the institutions were initially to negotiate together under the Kovacs program.
Rich countries have bought almost all the vaccines available today. 75% dose given in only 10 countries According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
