Potential Covid-19 vaccines should be made available to the world’s poorest people, the Primates of the Anglican Communion said. They made their call in a Communiqué published today after an online meeting held last week to discuss the global health emergency. During the meeting, they were briefed by two representatives of the World Health Organization (WHO and discussed regional reports from each other on the impact of the pandemic.
The WHO’s Executive Director for Health Emergencies Preparedness & Response, Dr Mike Ryan, told the Anglican leaders that “Epidemics are about communities. Communities stop epidemics. For this reason, we are eager to work with faith leaders to build solidarity and uphold social justice – enabling you to speak to communities in a credible and understandable way.”
