Ah High powered global panel finds the world's covert response has been dogged by a litany of failures. This is an ongoing dis aster that we believe could have been prevented whilst the virus was spreading. Information was being hoarded and decisions were delight and is there a new way of dealing with mental health will speak with the minister who's been put in charge of overseeing the change? For months, the federal government's fended off criticism It hasn't done enough to secure a reliable source in a broad range of covert vaccines overnight, the pharmaceutical giant Madonna's revealed not only has it done a deal to sell 10 million doses to Australia this year and 15 million booster shots next year. It's also in talks with the government about building a local plant to produce its new type of Emma Rene Vaccines here as Katherine Gregory reports, Australia's had a troubled vaccine rollout, partly because of supply problems.

The Madonna vaccine hasn't had the green light yet from the Therapeutic Goods Administration. But if it does, it'll send 10 million doses of the vaccine sometime this year and 15 million off its booster shots next year. Whole, Griffin says. It's the first time Australia's had a specific order for a booster jab. Very likely with all the front running vaccines. It don't need to be a Brewster at some stage. I guess we still don't know exactly what that interval will be. And I think we all expect that it's some such as well will need toe adapt our vaccine toe manage ah, very of concern or an escape period that I not have emerged yet the federal government's being criticized for relying too heavily on the AstraZeneca vaccine. Which, although is now being made locally. It isn't being used on people under 50 because of the extremely rare risk of developing blood clots. We also have the fires of vaccine for people under 50, but that's being in short supply. Madonna says it's open to Australia producing its vaccine here, but associate professor Paul Griffin says that will take a fair bit of investment before it's possible. We have a lot of really clever people who work in the spice in this country. I guess what we don't have is the capacity for the scale required toe make lots of lots of these vaccines. But I'm very confident with the right kind of support that the people that air I'm already having the expertise in the runs on the board in the Spice could very easily scale up their operations. Australia has also ordered 51 million doses of another vaccine called Novavax. But that pharmaceutical company has admitted it doesn't know when it will be able to submit further daughter for the therapeutic goods Administration to assess Jane Halton, who's the chair off the coalition of Epidemic preparedness and Innovations, thinks this makes the maternal deal all the more important. I think this is particularly significant and we know that no that that's one of the other Companies that we have done. A deal with may not be quick to supply this year. Listen some delays in their arrangement. So I think it's pretty good that we've now done apparently a deal with Madonna, and she hopes that people under 50 will be prioritized to get the maternal job when it arrives. We know that that's the population group that we at the moment continues the fires of axing for so I think having another vaccine that's available for that, under 50 cohort would be very helpful in order to make sure that we can get to at least 70% of their population has been vaccinated as fast as we can.

"The world health assembly called for an independent review of the globes response to covid nineteen and recommendations for the future. A panel of thirteen health leaders from around the world convened. Today their report on the pandemic is out the top line message. A world was not paid for this. It must be prepared and ready for the next. That was ellen. Johnson sirleaf the former president of liberia and co chair of the panel. Speaking this morning surly said the global systems to prevent and respond to pandemic threats are in urgent need of reform looking back the. Who could have acted sooner and declaring a global health emergency but even with that country's clearly did not react soon enough anyway. Had that happen. This whole catastrophe could have been averted. Here's sirleaf again. This was partly due to a failure to learn from the past. they are reviews of previous health disasters. That have gavitt just in basements of the united nations and governments. The world had been warned that this would happen. This should never happen again. So how exactly to prevent this doctor joanne. Liu is a member of the independent panel for pandemic preparedness response. She's a professor at mcgill university in montreal and the former director of med sandstone frontier doctorswithoutborders. Dr liu group is calling for big reforms so these global health systems that monitor disease outbreaks and prevent them. What needs to change calls for immediate action to happen right. Now we need to distribute vaccine. We think that high income country would have a one billion vaccine to redistribute in. We wish they would do that. By september first or at least commit to do that. We need to finance research and development platform and enbridge the funding gap. And then. lastly we think that we need to increase the ability in the manufacturing of vaccine through voluntary licensing and tech transfer. By doing that now. I think its paving the way to be better prepared next time around but in terms of global leadership panel found that the. Who is limited in. Its ability to act. So why is that. And how could it be made more effective. I think what what is. The call is the fact that we need a bit of a recent another world looking at me and we call it the Noblewoman of the twenty. Th century saying that we need to elevate the threat of dimick's at the level of nuclear weapon where all of us agree that the consequences is so dramatic that everybody needs to pay attention and we need to avoid those kind of events. And if we do that then the rest in awful naturally in that we will strengthen. Who would have predictable financement. So who and as we shield the institution from undue political pressure out you raise the concept of a pandemic to kind of like the level of nuclear war i mean is it through messaging partly but we need to walk the talk so it means that it needs to get the highest level of attention at political level end at four needs to be dealt at the level of head of state or prime minister and this is why we call upon for me what we call a global health threat council so we heard ellen johnson sirleaf a moment ago state. That reports often collect dust in basements. What is the main lesson about how to prevent history from repeating the missteps when it comes to pandemic preparedness. There's so so distressing just sitting extend because it'd be more than elon panel and commission and we know that less than ten percent of the recommendation will implement the reality is. We are not sure of recomendation. We short of action. I doubt that any of us wants to go to another twelve months of what we went through. Any flea are really tariffs in. We need to fix the system. Dr joanne liu is the former director of medicine frontier and a member of the independent panel for pandemic preparedness and response which based their recommendations today. Dr liu thank you very much for being with us. Thank you very much for more than two weeks. Now in columbia widespread protests of the nation anger boiling over prompted by a proposed tax hike.
