The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) holds a joint work with over than 350 partners, including large air- and shipping companies, logistics associations all over the world to organize the largest and the fastest operation on the supply of 2 billion doses of the vaccine against Covid-19 to over than 92 countries as soon as it becomes available, as the Fund reported.
“As work continues to develop COVID-19 vaccines, UNICEF is stepping up efforts with airlines, freight operators, shipping lines, and other logistics associations to deliver life-saving vaccines as quickly and safely as possible,” Director of UNICEF’s Supply Division Etleva Kadilli said.
To start the preparation for the logistics operation, the UNICEF along with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) informed the major world air companies about the expected demands for output and discussed the ways of transfer of about 2 billion doses of vaccine next year. Besides, a billion syringes should be supplied by sea.
As we reported, leaders of the 20 biggest economies on Saturday vowed to ensure a fair distribution of Covid-19 vaccines, drugs, and tests around the world and do what was needed to support poorer countries struggling to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
