Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and WHO write to G20 leaders urging them to supply promised vaccines
In an open "call to action" letter to G20 leaders ahead of their 2021 Italian Summit, signed by Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (the WHO director General) and others, world leaders are called upon to fulfill the promises they have made to supply COVID vaccines to low-and-middle income countries.
Meghan and Harry repeat earlier statements that they have made on the issue of vaccine equity, saying that access to a COVID vaccine is a fundamental human right.
The letter calls for the G20 leaders to deliver on their previous promises to donate vaccines, to ensure that surplus vaccines are put to good use, and also asks that the wealthier G20 countries help other countries to be able to manufacture their own vaccines.
The letter ends "Cooperation of historic proportion is the only solution. Lives literally depend of it."
