Global vaccine inequality is the result of our broken pharmaceutical industry, rooted in colonial history that extracts from the south to enrich the north. Economic rules designed by rich countries drive record profits for multinational companies and block the demands of countries in the global south to gain control over vaccine production. Join our speaker tour to find out how countries in the global south are fighting back against the profit-driven pharmaceutical system, and what we can do to transform health provision globally to dismantle these colonial dynamics.
