The Covax initiative, funded by the WHO, aims to guarantee fair access to corona vaccines. Several countries have already expressed interest in cooperation. The US refuses to participate. The reason is the broken relationship between the Trump administration and the WHO. The US government does not want to participate in the international Covax initiative, which is supposed to guarantee fair worldwide access to Covid-19 vaccines. The US will not allow itself to be restricted by multilateral projects that are under the influence of “the corrupt World Health Organization (WHO) and China,” a statement from the White House said. Covax is led by the Gavi and Cepi vaccination alliances and by the WHO.
Waiting for the corona injection Which vaccine stocks are booming and which are not
The United States left the WHO in July. President Donald Trump accused the Geneva-based organization of having informed too late about the danger of the coronavirus and of being under the control of the government in Beijing, even though China pays smaller contributions to the WHO than the US. Trump makes the WHO jointly responsible for the high number of deaths related to the virus. Government spokesman Judd Deere said in the statement that the president will spare no expense to ensure that every new vaccine meets FDA standards, is thoroughly tested and saves lives.
Several dozen countries have so far shown interest in a Covax cooperation. The program includes several vaccine candidates. As soon as a preparation has proven to be effective and safe, two billion vaccine doses are to be produced by the end of 2021. The aim is to protect caregivers and people who are particularly vulnerable to old age or previous illnesses in all countries around the world — around 20 percent of the total population in the participating countries.
The WHO recently warned against national solo efforts in the fight against the corona virus and appealed to all countries to invest more money in the Covax initiative. It is of no use to vaccinate the entire own population if in other countries particularly needy people such as nursing staff remain unprotected. The EU recently announced that it would support the initiative with guarantees worth EUR 400 million.
