Covid and Essential Medicines

Nations scramble to slow the spread of Covid-19 as new variants are discovered in the midst of vaccination programs. The need for global solidarity, universal health care, and access to diagnostic tools, treatment, and vaccines has never been greater. This week’s “Community thru Covid” explores the latest in the “Free the Vaccine” campaign.

Guests: Merith Basey, executive director for Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) and Campaign Lead for Free the Vaccine for COVID-19; Rachel Gita Karp, lead project manager for the Free the Vaccine & the special projects coordinator for the Center for Artistic Activism; and Tayyiaba Farooq & Maanasa Gurram, undergraduate student leaders with UAEM and Free the Vaccine.
