We all have the right to live happy and healthy lives. But right now, billions of people in low and lower-middle-income countries are missing out on life-saving vaccines.

The Covid-19 pandemic has now entered its third year. But what could have been an extraordinary feat for
humanity - countries working closely together to ensure no one is left behind in vaccination efforts - is in fact the clearest
indication of vaccine inequality.

While almost two-thirds of the world’s population have received a vaccine, only 15.9% of people in low-income countries have received their first dose. This is a stark reminder that this pandemic is not over. Unequal access to Covid-19 diagnostics, treatments and vaccines continues to be a reality for millions, particularly in low- and lower-middle-income countries.

But it doesn't have to be like this. To ensure everyone has access to life-saving Covid-19 vaccines and medicines, we’re calling on the Albanese Government to; redistribute all surplus Covid-19 vaccine stocks, sponsor efforts at the World Trade Organization that would allow countries to develop vaccines locally, and extend its contract with biotech giant CSL to continue manufacturing AstraZeneca vaccines domestically.

We're challenging the Australian Government to do their part to help end this pandemic. There is no time to waste. The global vaccines crisis requires that we act together to demand change.   

Take action and demand the Albanese Government help bring an end to global vaccine inequality now.
