By Aaron Humes: Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has re-emphasized the value of a comprehensive, risk-based approach of tailored public health and social measures, in combination with early clinical care and equitable vaccination.
“Vaccines are a powerful tool that will help to bring the pandemic under control,” he said, but continued, “But we are not there yet…It’s not vaccines only – it’s vaccines and.”
WHO—with support from donors and partners—continues to support countries in need with ‘vaccines and’ to fight COVID-19.
The COVAX facility has donated, with support from bilateral donors, vaccines to countries such as Niger, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Venezuela in recent weeks.
Belize, already a COVAX recipient, was recently the recipient of a donated bi-level positive airway pressure unit to the national referral hospital for COVID-19 to treat critical patients.
Many recent donations from the WHO and its regional partners are from bilateral sources.
WHO thanks all governments, organizations and individuals contributing to the COVID-19 response around the world since the beginning of the outbreak, and in particular those who have provided fully flexible contributions, to ensure a comprehensive fight against the disease.
