AMI C-TAP Policy Paper

January 12, 2021

AMI welcomes the positive data emerging on COVID-19 vaccine candidates including those developed by Pfizer/BioNtech, Moderna, and Oxford/AstraZeneca. The situation is evolving rapidly and further health technologies are expected to come on stream in the coming weeks and months.

Our concern, however, is that the projected vaccine supplies suggest that just over one third of the global population can be vaccinated by the end of 2021, and that the majority of people living in low-income countries will not have access to a vaccine against COVID-19 until 2023 or 2024.4

 It is crucial that attention turns to ensuring that we have affordable and equitable access to approved vaccines and other health technologies globally. Such global access is needed to bring an end to COVID-19. To achieve this, AMI is calling upon the Irish Government to support the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Technology Access Pool (C-TAP) as soon as possible.
