Waiting on a COVID-19 vaccine? The World Health Organization (WHO) has provided developments over the past week.
The WHO has a process for expediting vaccine development and adoption. The WHO has convened a global coalition, comprised of public and private sector partners, to develop and evaluate potential vaccines.
By mapping the progress of candidate vaccines in production and coordinating clinical trials world-wide, the WHO is able to closely coordinate with researchers and vaccine developers to make the exchange of information more efficient, to collaboratively define desired vaccine characteristics such as safety and efficacy, and to easily discuss any challenges.
The WHO is so confident in this process that they are already discussing next steps and working on ensuring that everyone, in every community across the globe, can easily and quickly access the vaccine.
