At the conclusion of the 6th EU-African Union Summit in Brussels Africa gets mRNA technology

Six African countries have been given mRNA technology by the World Health Organisation at the conclusion of the 6th European Union -African Union Summit in Brussels. The mRNA tech is used in producing vaccines that fight Covid-19. Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia are the beneficiaries.

WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced the award Friday in Brussels at the European Union-African Union summit. “No other event like the COVID-19 pandemic has shown that reliance on a few companies to supply global public goods is limiting, and dangerous.” He said.

“In the mid- to long-term, the best way to address health emergencies and reach universal health coverage is to significantly increase the capacity of all regions to manufacture the health products they need, with equitable access as their primary endpoint.” He added.

According to the World Health Organisation, 80% of Africans had yet to get their double shot and booster. The WHO Director-General said. “Much of this inequity has been driven by the fact that globally, vaccine production is concentrated in a few mostly high-income countries.”

The White House meanwhile is to give Angola, Ivory Coast, Eswatini – formerly known as Swaziland, Ghana, Lesotho, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia $250 million to fund a coronavirus vaccine campaign.
