The Pandemic is Not Over – A COVID-19 vaccine equity conference

DATE: June 2, 2022
TIME: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

 
 
 

Billions of people are still being denied access to COVID-19 vaccine and treatments and millions are still dying and getting severely ill.

Ahead of the Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation in June, the Peoples Vaccine Alliance Ireland are organising a two hour online conference on 2 June (10am-12pm) to call for an agreement for a waiver of intellectual property rights for COVID-19 vaccines, treatments and diagnostics (TRIPS waiver). 

The TRIPS waiver would facilitate the local generic production of COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments in low and middle-income countries and has been opposed by the Irish Government and the pharmaceutical industry to date.

The conference aims to highlight the impacts of COVID-19, the solutions for ensuring vaccine equity, particularly an intellectual property waiver; and how we can support countries distribute vaccines. 

Speakers will include Senator Alice-Mary Higgins leader of The Civil Engagement Group in Seanad Éireann, & Dr. Luke McDonagh Assistant Professor at the London School of Economics researching Intellectual Property & Public Law, with details of further speakers to follow.
