How vaccine inequality is endangering the world
"With that anniversary one year ago today when the World Health Organization officially declared the covert 19 outbreak, a worldwide pandemic when a year on and 2.6 million people have died worldwide, and the economy is in tatters. There is also hope, because Kobe vaccination drives under way more than 100 countries with more than 300 million doses of ministered, but who gets vaccinated, for example, there around 80 million refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide. Will they be included in vaccination plans where they live? Filippo Grandi is the U. N High Commissioner for Refugees and his current in Uganda. When I spoke to him, he started by telling me what impact the pandemic and lockdowns have had on refugees. Where I think the impact is severe and will be even more severe is more on the economic side and in lockdowns, which prevail all over the world. We've seen an escalation off poverty if you wish in refugee and displaced community all over the world from Lebanon, Toe black in America, the Venezuelans toe Afghans in South Asia and so forth, So this is really the key challenge that we have to face now. We know that the key to getting out of the pandemic. His vaccination aren't refugees at the end of the list of people who are going to get vaccinated or too often, well, that was very much our concern, especially refugees. Refugees are not nationals off the country's they're in, and we were worried that because of that they would be marginalized. You know, there's been some good developments. I am in Uganda is speaking to you from Kampala and here, for example, today the vaccination begins. I was with the acting prime minister this morning He was going to be vaccinated and he was keen to tell me refugees will be included. There's no question about that. You can the host 1.5 million refugees. Almost the pandemic has the underlying the inequalities that disparities Throughout the world on one of those is that the richer Western countries of vaccinating at a much higher rate than poorer countries, and yet so many of the world's refugees, Aaron places Like where you are right now, you can do that slower roll out in places like Uganda is undoubtedly going to effect refugees, isn't it? You're absolutely right. George. Vaccination programs have to exist and to be rolled out to include refugees, and this is where really the enormous inequality of the international system has appeared. Very carries. The tent of March is the first day that you can to a nation of more than 40 Million people is receiving its first vaccine when in rich countries. This has been going on for several months. So this inequality is blatant. This needs to be corrected. We are active as an organization in those initiatives that aimed at securing a minimum amount of doses. For poor countries and our role there is to ensure that some of those does is go to the refugees as well. But frankly speaking, that effort is not enough to correct that huge imbalance which is really short sighted. It's not only wrong, it's shortsighted. It's a bit like refugees and nationals in the country if people in poor countries do not get vaccination. This is a global issue. It will backfire everywhere else so then more vaccines and needed and more needs to be done to deal with, as you say, the social impact of the pandemic on Refugees in particular. He's a difficult questions, and there aren't presumably easy solutions to them. But what are a couple of things that could should be done to make progress in this sense from the very beginning off the pandemic? I've reached out personally to the leadership of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. These institutions have led The establishment off economic rescue packages for countries impacted by Corbett and lockdowns, and my message to them has bean first of all to accelerate. The disbursement of those packages so that this country's are more protected, but also to ensure that vulnerable groups are included actually are considered as a factor to increase those packages. In other words, take Uganda again. Uganda is negotiating. If I understand with the I m F one such package and the message that I will pass through the eye, meth and other similar institutions is remembered. Uganda has what 40 45 million people. It's national population. It has almost 1.5 million refugees. These needs to be factored in, especially in countries like you can that that are very inclusive that include refugees in education programs in health programs that extend to them efforts to create livelihoods. This additional burden that these countries have needs to be considered when this economic packages are rolled out. This is not always the case. Look at Lebanon, for example, where one in four people is a refugee. This huge political tension in Lebanon over this refugee issue. I'm very worried that rescue packages being rolled out and Lebanon has many challenges may not include refugees, and this would be catastrophic for this huge, vulnerable population in that particular country, And this example is valid in other countries as well. So yes, More complex, I would say even then the vaccination inclusion.

"So if anything, I don't have any information to that effect, and with certainty that national defense forces would not be targeting public utilization or infrastructure that is in service to the public. How worried are you about the prospect of a long insurrection by TPLF forces? TPLF, unlike the way that it's been touted over the past few weeks for being battle hardened is really not. The old guard are still under the illusion off their guerilla warfare that they had engaged in back in the eighties. However, a majority off the two great people are really exhausted from that. And what you witnessed over the past three years specifically is while the TPL of all guards were much more rooted and focused on the political instability is that they were behind to disturb lies. Ethiopia, There hasn't been a lot of focus for residents within within that. The region. So the economy is not doing that great. There hasn't been a lot of focus on essential services as well. So the people have too great a really exhausted and there isn't that mo mentum from within the region that would support the TPL left for this kind of a long, drawn out altercations. Right. Well, it's Yeah, it's difficult for us to ask people their because, of course, you know many journalists, you know, can't get access and we can't We can't communicate with them. But I suppose the question is, How are you going to persuade people into grow to support the central government? This is not a matter of persuasion per se. There's been a lot of public consultations that have been had with Ethiopians of two great origin who are in the capital city as well. But now going into the two gray region, the Provisional administration, which has been set up constitutionally by the House of Federation is already active. They're already on the ground and one of their primary tasks over the six months off the duration of the state of emergency. Is to set up you know the institutions that have been betrayed by the TPL left because some off their critical services were betrayed by the leadership that had been put in there that's run off. Leaving. The service is unattended for the for their own population as well. So setting up humanitarian, um, provisions setting up services. That are key in the area and key aspect off that is also engaging in dialogue with the people of to cry now wanting to really understand about the provisional administration off the guy that has been set up is that it's not a foreign body, but it's constituted or comprises political parties from the Tigray region and people off to dry, who are now working in favor off addressing the needs off the two great people. Was building, they say, UM, press secretary for the European Prime Minister RB Ahmed, or the Fighting in northern Ethiopia has forced tens of thousands of people to flee mostly to neighboring Sudan. Filippo Grandi is the U. N High commissioner for Refugees sees in Sudan and he's been visiting the refugee camps and described the situation. People continue to come yesterday we had about 800 crossing the Sudanese border the day before when I was there for 550. So it's not the same figures as we saw a couple of weeks ago, but still substantive numbers. Off People cross think onboard. Sudan has kept borders open. I think this needs to be noted and commended in these difficult times, in spite of all its challenges, But Sudan needs help. Of course in the response, it doesn't have the resources. Yesterday, the U. N put out an appeal for $150 million for six months, and it is important to respond. The donor's respond quickly because we do need to step up the response. Both at the border and in the location that has been identified by the Sudanese government to move people toe in order to be away from the More dangerous areas. I'm afraid time's a little bit limited. But I do need to ask you about this. These reports that thousands of every train refugees who'd lived in to grind that they've been abducted by Eritrean Troops. Do you know what's happened to them? No. Unfortunately, we have no access anymore, so those camps in integrate, but it is a great concern. The treatment off those 100,000 every trend. Refugees if European has always hosted them with great generosity, So I keep appealing to the federal government of Ethiopia for this hospitality to continue. This is their responsibility, and they need to continue to uphold it. I am very worried about that. But if it is true, and and is there a tray and troops have crossed over the border I mean, is there anything you can do? I I There is nothing I can do it, especially given that we don't have access to the area. But all I can say at this point it it would be a major violation of international norms. If this had happened, But I don't have any confirmation that this has happened other than the reports that you have seen Filippo Grandi, the U.

"I think you could pick any one of the regional commanders in their recent testimony and underlying all of that is the close relationships that we have to have with our partner nations in those regions and the importance of keeping that investment strong. I would just add an anecdote when when nine eleven occurred we had gone through a period in the previous twelve or thirteen years where we had cut back substantially the number. USA ID and foreign aid workers in the field to a point where where we once had over fifteen thousand. Folks around the world, we were down on nine eleven to about eighteen hundred and that really changes the the political dynamic in countries where you're trying to create some peace and stability. You've mentioned Afghanistan in nine eleven is there. Another example that springs to mind of what you fear might be lost. If the State Department and USA ID are not adequately funded or if they're undercut well, one of the one of the concerns that I think military commanders would would echo is that we will have crises we can almost guarantee there will be another crisis somewhere in the near horizon. And we hope in most of those cases that can be dealt with through diplomacy and foreign aid. And we can look at things like Ebola in west Africa. We can we can see how critical that ability to rapidly move aid and assistance into a country might be. It's also important that we have security in and around that area. But if we don't have the diplomatic tool to use. The only option left is the military, and that's not necessarily the way we train and equip, our our leaders in the military, and and we have some examples with the regional reconstruction teams that we provisional reconstruction teams that we had in Afghanistan they were manned by the military until the State Department some years later could begin to fill those positions to push back on you a little bit. General the administration argues that these proposed cuts will encourage other countries to become more self reliant it actually identifies that as a goal of this budget to reduce the need for foreign assistance. What's wrong with that argument? Well, I think first of all we would hope that that all of those countries would continue to invest more and more in their own in their own security, and and in their economic growth, the challenge is that many need that jump start to help them and the importance of US presence in the region, as well as assistance is is is clear and important, and I I would go to. The Pacific as an example, where there is a long history with our partners in in South Korea, and Japan and in China and having US presence there provide some stability that that allows for diplomacy to take place. The same is true with our presence in Europe after World War Two the presence of of strong US military, but also in a rebuilding and reconstruction allowed those countries to to create the vibrant economies that they see today. General. Thank you. My pleasure is retired air force General, Jean Renoir, one of more than a dozen retired generals and admirals who have released a statement counseling against cuts to the State Department and USA ID.
