    The global rollout of COVID-19 vaccines is widening the divide between the world’s rich and poor.

    The United Nations warns what it calls ‘vaccine nationalism’ is on the rise, as the US, Europe and many wealthier countries buy up millions of potential doses.

    The World Health Organization urged countries to prioritise COVAX, an initiative to secure vaccines to low and middle-income nations.

    So how can we ensure protection for everyone?
