As the global vaccination effort accelerates, recently boosted by the G7 pledge to provide one billion doses to poorer countries, what role can religious groups play in ensuring an equitable distribution of vaccines? How can governments work with faith communities to overcome vaccine skepticism, which often has religious overtones? What lessons can be learned from previous public health challenges, such as the Ebola crisis? Can interreligious collaboration be a force multiplier in this vaccination effort?
In this launch event for the 2021 TPNRD Strategic Note on Religion & Diplomacy, a diverse panel of speakers - from government, academia, and the NGO sector - explored how governments can partner with religious groups, faith-based organizations, and interfaith networks to distribute COVID-19 vaccines and overcome vaccine hesitancy.
