Getting to 70 percent: The commitment to vaccinate the planet in one year

October 20, 2021 by PATH

Following the Global COVID-19 Summit, world leaders have committed to several ambitious goals, including getting 70 percent of the world vaccinated against COVID-19 within one year. Achieving this ambitious goal will require that leaders understand low- and middle-income countries’ unique needs—a point not emphasized enough in global response efforts until now. PATH has made its own commitments in this pursuit and is convening important stakeholders to discuss critical next steps. From financing and political leadership to technology transfer and manufacturing, join this PATH Live Forum to discuss how we got to this moment, where we stand today, and what needs to happen to achieve vaccine equity and end the pandemic.
