A year ago, #COVID19 emerged & sparked a pandemic. Life-saving vaccines have been developed. What happens next is up to us. If we don't #ACTogether, the 🌍 is on the brink of a catastrophic moral failure & the price will be paid with lives & livelihoods in the poorest countries.

On #MLKDay, we must act on Dr King's words: 'Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking & the most inhuman...' Today I warned of 'another brick in the inequality wall between the πŸŒβ€™s haves & have-nots' without equitable vaccine rollout. #ACTogether
