Geneva, September 7
The World Health Organization is in talks with India about becoming a member of the “COVAX” world vaccine allocation plan, a senior WHO adviser mentioned on Monday.
“India is certainly eligible, like all countries in the world, to be part of the COVAX facility and discussions are ongoing in that regard,” Bruce Aylward informed a briefing in Geneva. “We would welcome Indian participation …India has extensive experience (with vaccines).”
The WHO and the GAVI vaccine alliance are main the COVAX facility, aimed toward serving to purchase and distribute vaccination pictures towards the novel coronavirus pretty all over the world. But some international locations which have secured their very own provides by way of bilateral offers, together with the United States, have mentioned they won’t be a part of COVAX. Reuters
