As a network of emerging global public health leaders and professionals, we believe that we are uniquely positioned to demand accountability from leadership and to reinforce the need for equity across global COVID-19 vaccine access and distribution efforts. On October 30, 2021, aligning with the G20 Summit, we published the position paper attached below that uniquely emphasizes our youth-led voice, with demands for new efforts and strategies to increase the distribution and accessibility of COVID-19 vaccines to low and middle-income countries.
In this paper, we emphasize the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable communities, with an eye on its cross-cutting consequences on young people (and future generations) around the world. We plan on presenting this work to global and local stakeholders to push the needle forward and demand equity.
We kindly invite each and every one of you to support our position paper as a signatory, as we believe that this is a fight that requires coordinated action across all actors and at all levels.
