ADVOCATING FOR EQUITABLE COVID-19 VACCINE ACCESS: AN ETHICAL IMPERATIVE

In the last 12-months, the world and our very way of life has been fundamentally altered by the global pandemic, and we have had to learn to manage the catastrophic health, psychosocial, social and economic effects that have emerged as the primary consequential outcomes of COVID-19. Recently, our attention has been re-directed to the hopes associated with the development of  efficacious vaccines to combat the virus.
