  • ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Temporary waiver on IP laws could help poorer nations with COVID-19 vaccine rollout | The World” – below is their description.

    As more developed countries accelerate their vaccine rollouts, the disparity between rich and poor nations is becoming more and more pronounced. While some places like the United States have managed to fully vaccinate more than half their populations, in poorer countries the effort has barely begun. Dinah Fuentesfina is the campaign manager for Action Aid International and Co-convenor of the Peoples’ Vaccine Alliance Asia. She says a temporary waiver on intellectual property law – also known as ‘TRIPS’ – could help speed up the process.
