The African Union, through the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), has taken a leadership role in developing the continent’s strategy for development and access to a COVID-19 vaccine.
Leading up to the World Health Assembly in May 2020, H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa, Chairperson of the African Union and President of the Republic of South Africa called for a “bold international agreement” that guarantees global equitable access to vaccines as global public goods.
Earlier this year in June, the Africa CDC hosted a conference bringing together over 3,000 political leaders and technical experts to discuss COVID-19 vaccine needs on the continent and regional opportunities for driving vaccine development, manufacturing, distribution and uptake. The result was the COVID-19 Vaccine Development and Access Strategy, endorsed by the African Union Bureau of Heads of State and Government in August.
