Description

Faced with the inadequacies of multilateral action, several major global health stakeholders – states, international organizations, and foundations – have joined forces within the Access to Covid-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator. This joint response aims to accelerate the end of the pandemic by supporting the development and production of diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines against Covid-19. Although the ACT Accelerator is already producing results, much remains to be done. In addition to the $3.4 billion in commitments that have already been made, $34.5 billion are still needed to achieve their objectives: distribute 2 billion doses of vaccines, 245 million treatments and 500 million diagnostic tests.
