The WHO scheme aiming to secure Covid vaccine for poorer nations

If scarce vaccine supplies are already putting wealthy nations into a tailspin over unfulfilled contracts – what about the countries at the back of the queue?

The World Health Organization says no one is protected from this pandemic until everyone is protected. They are relying on a global scheme to share out vaccine supplies, by helping poorer nations secure doses at little or no cost.

A scheme which is too big, and too important to fail.
