Seth Berkley: Planning for the Largest Vaccine Rollout in History

Subscribe and Listen

For our first episode of Pandemic Planet, we are joined by Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. For the past two decades, Gavi has mobilized its network of government, private sector, and civil society partners to make vaccines affordable and available to millions of children in the world’s lowest-income countries. Nearly a year into the pandemic, how has Gavi pivoted to respond to the challenge of the novel coronavirus? How has it worked with new partners to stand up global mechanisms like COVAX? And as we prepare for the largest rollout of vaccines in history, what lessons can Gavi offer the world on the importance of equitable immunization to global security and recovery?
