Key questions in our research
Why have only 15% of people in low-income countries received a dose of Covid-19 vaccine, when rich countries are planning a 4th dose?
Our research touches upon this question as we study how public authorities and pharmaceutical companies cooperate to develop Covid-19 vaccines, scale-up production and work towards a more equitable allocation of vaccines.
And more generally, how are global vaccination programs connected to local health systems? Is local knowledge reflected in global immunization priorities?
