who A year ago, the world faced a pandemic with no vaccines against the disease causing it.
Today, the ACT-Accelerator has made significant strides in the development and equitable distribution of millions of diagnostic kits, vaccine doses and treatments to fight the #COVID19 pandemic.
1⃣ 40+ million COVID-19 vaccines delivered to 100+ economies through #COVAX
2⃣ Over 65 million COVID-19 tests procured for lower income countries
3⃣ Scaling up research and ensuring access to dexamethasone and oxygen
4⃣ Responding to each country’s needs, applying global knowledge to local problems
But this global collaboration faces a funding gap of US$ 19 billion for 2021. More resources are urgently needed to ensure that where someone lives doesn't determine their chances against COVID-19. #ACTogether
