The once-in-a-century event of COVID-19 has upended our lives but the return to normality can only happen via a safe, effective, and widely distributed vaccine. While there are some 200 vaccines currently in development across the world, lots of questions remain unanswered. How soon until there’s a vaccine? How do we distribute it? How will developing nations across Asia Pacific ensure they get fair access to a vaccine? How often will we need it? And how will we know it’s safe? Join host Nisha Pillai as a panel of international experts provides answers and insights to these questions and more. Full program available Friday, 16 October.

Program line-up

Former BBC presenter Nisha Pillai will interview Jane Halton, Chair of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations and the Cochair of the COVAX initiative, followed by a panel discussion with: Rajeev Venkayya, President of the Global Vaccine Business Unit at Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd; Dr. Michelle Dynes, Immunization Demand Specialist with UNICEF’s East Asia and Pacific Regional Office in Bangkok; Anup Malani, Lee and Brena Freeman Professor at the University of Chicago Law School; and Dr. Patrick L.
