Priorities of the German G7 Presidency Facilitating global access to vaccines and strengthening health systems
So far, only a very small percentage of the vaccines being administered in Africa are actually manufactured there. That is why we want to scale up the production of vaccines on the African continent in particular. The logistics in partner countries need to be scaled up as well, so that, for example, the distribution of the vaccines to all regions of a country can be ensured. In addition, we need to be making a start on thinking beyond the current pandemic and on considering ways to prevent future pandemics. The G7 are therefore helping partner countries to strengthen their health systems in the medium and long term as well.
