At UN General Assembly, PHR Joins Coalition Action for Urgent Acceleration of Global Vaccine Access

Despite the rapid development of effective vaccines and efforts to ramp up production, much of the world’s population has limited – if any – access to vaccines, while high-income countries continue to hoard vaccine doses and refuse to take the necessary steps to ensure equitable global distribution.

As global leaders gathered in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly, PHR took to the streets with Health GAP and other partners in the People’s Vaccine campaign to demand that vaccines reach those who need them most. PHR joined frontline health care workers and leading public health experts like Dr. Oni Blackstock to send a clear message to President Biden and other decision-makers: vaccine equity is not just a matter of health, but also a matter of human rights.
