The program aimed to vaccinate one million nine year olds through their schools. It started in april of two thousand sixteen more than a year later. Santi came out with a devastating statement. Basically said for children that never had done before if you vaccinate that they would experience a higher risk of getting hospitalized or severe disease if they get Bank after getting backs needed after that on says things spun out of control stories of mothers who believe their children had been harmed by the vaccine spread like wildfire government agencies.

Event uber hearing about them back scheffer rarity. Lock time but even though the deaths of only three children were found to have been linked to dang vaction aung says.

That's putting an immense strain on the us and global supply chains.

"Create a system vaccine party and joining us from bangalore. India is a show of coordinator access Apesse the project which campaigns for access to medicines in india brazil and south africa recently co authored. a piece in the new york times headlined. It's time to trust china's and russia's vaccines. We're gonna get to that in a minute. But i want to go to fatima my house and thanks so much for being with us. Because you've just finished a major news conference and address in south africa. Talk about what you said and what this day of action is about what has the. Us done thank you. Amien good to be on the shows. It's one years since the. Who declared that covid. Nineteen pandemic and in order to mock that one year declaration organizations from around the world including the people's vaccine campaign in south africa. Which has a number of organizations and individuals supporting it have basically decided to take on demand to the pharmaceutical companies that at the moment practicing recall a pernicious form of vaccine by refusing to give up the intellectual property rights in refusing to urgently scale up manufacturing capabilities and capacity. Pull the global south. Meaning that you know. Millions of us are basically going to have to wait for a vaccine putting global immunity as well as regional immunity particularly in africa at severe risk and chill. If you could explain you know when we discussed problems of vaccine access around the world we're speaking principally about madonna and astrazeneca but you wrote a piece in the new york times as we mentioned earlier headlined. it's time to trust china's and russia's vaccines. Could you talk about what you believe. The significance is the importance of those vaccines for the global south. And what you think needs to be done. It's a situation that we've seen of the failure of the western pharmaceutical industry to address the needs of five percent of the that's become now but will also seen a failure of western philanthropy so the kovacs facility which is driven by garvey recently sent out should manned to cover three hundred thousand people in ghana or less than one percent of the population of ghana and this is wild countries like the united arab emirates at israel have vaccinated between fifty and sixty percent of their populations. The united states and the uk have between two indian thirty five percent of their population vaccinated so the idea philanthropy from the westwood. Save is is studying how to be a false hole in this context. One of the reasons. It's so hard to negotiate with. Western pharmaceutical manufacturers is that we seemingly have no alternative. We don't have genetic drugs from from india for aids that we could use as an alternative in two thousand but we do have did. We just have to acknowledge that it exists and the alternative at the moment are vaccines from china and russia to leading vaccine candidates in china and one in russia which have struck supply of close to three billion doses. Just for this. they the lifeline. To middle income countries all over latin america the arab world south asia pakistan india eyelid malaysia and indonesia about the problem with them is there. We seem to be in a state of denial the exist even though they have such reach utility both in terms of solving an immediate problem in the pandemic but also serving as a useful cudgel to negotiate with western pharmaceutical companies to gain more access to their vaccines and explain. Why do you think it is that. There's such skepticism about the russia and china vaccines. I mean they're reports. The people within russia are refusing to take us but neck a v. And also the response to your piece your new york times piece from china and russia as well as from here in the. Us are at the start it should be just said i think the entire world not just. The west is incredulous at the idea that you can have useful. Science fantastic. come out of places is not in the west. This is just a fact and it's not justified in the worst affected india. It's affecting southern africa. It's it's a fact in russia and china. As you mentioned there have been many reports about this. One of the problems with this. Is that to overcome these perceptions. We need to have a better access to data and a better grasp of the facts on the ground. The fact that incredibly a rigorous regulatory authorities in turkey and brazil and indonesia have grew these vaccines and run trials on them somehow. Doesn't seem to matter breakthrough into the dialogue about global vaccine access and this includes activities. Unfortunately we've had several conversations. I love the people that have been everything that it does. And i was one of the first signatories to its letter last year which kicked off the campaign but i should say that many activists are also blind to this. I think to the same kind of denial that there are vaccines outside the west. The world just russia in china by the way so india has a vaccine with just posted interim efficacy one percent were already exporting into brazil to other countries that are vaccines under development in cuba in island in a range of different countries and if we created in better enabling infrastructure to validate these vaccines or even just stem. Then that would go a long weekend. Increasing the confidence in science that comes out of the west and good signs. That comes out of states. And can you respond to that Fatima hassen great. So i mean. I think chili's right now. Kovacs mechanism doesn't have any agreement signed as well as nick in south africa. The situation is slightly different. We don't have a single vaccine registered for you know. Widespread population us as yet because all of the dossiers are still being reviewed in the case of sputnik they finally only in the last few weeks submitted the dossier and that's currently under review. What we've been told is that sign afam and sign of a vac have not submitted their dossiers and are not willing to share their data so particularly in the south african context with a very stringent regulator. Willie sign afam. Whether it's put nick whether it's johnson and johnson s zenko madonna. You know all of them have to submit their data and they subject to the same review and sign thank even though they may be vaccine from russia and china the issues that we have is activists around the transparency of all of these companies. Around all of the around. All of the dossier is still stands. The second issue obviously is that we also need pricing transparency across all of these different companies because we are getting reports that in countries started rolling out some of the sputnik china sign evac or s zenica. Johnson and johnson whichever vaccine may be based on the authorisation that they've received there's very little pricing transparency. So the concern is you know. Is that also this differentiation. Differential pricing structures within kovacs also within the bilateral. So i think it's it's drew to say that the ease overlooking of some of the vaccines that actually come from countries. That don't normally you know. Western countries don't normally want to deal with them or don't normally want to buy the vaccines but the issues that we have around transparency around data sharing around regulatory review and approval. I think applies to all of them in relation to the chinese vaccines. And i'm just using that to to basically cover both sign of farm in sign of ecuador. Government has sit on oath is that until the data is actually submitted they just basically having preliminary conversations and in south africa. That seems to have been broken through the chinese embassy. I think because. India and south africa part of bricks the irony in relation to how we are relying on western vaccines or whether we relying on the russian and chinese vaccines is that brazil. The outlier at the moment. It's opposing the trips waiver. That south africa and india have been leading in geneva since last year. And so there's a number of geopolitical considerations that are beyond just the efficacy of actually playing out and are going to influence the final vaccine selections for a number of countries in africa. I wanted to turn to the head of the international federation of former suitable manufacturers. A lobbying group for big pharma. This is thomas twenty. There's nobody knows about vaccine manufacturing and was interesting bottlenecks knew that. Ip is not the issue to bottlenecks all a capacity scarcity materials cassidy of ingredients and it is about in her. so fatima. hasn't can you respond to big pharma. Big pharma said those edyta. The hiv aids crisis adele correctly pointed out in the beginning we were able to ramp up the activism. Really challenge a lot of these myths and a lot of these claims from big pharma. I mean we would even sued by the industry in in south africa. But i think that we have as a political wall. Wavy is an explicit operation to share the vaccine and technology. They certainly is capacity in the global south to do two things one folding finished but to even to do full manufacturing and this is you know when you ask the first question around what the us government could do what it hasn't done. A number of activists in in the us and around the world have said to the biden administration. If you step in on some of the vaccines that you've actually co-funded in co-develop through the nih you could you know a little bit of investment and over the next few months actually invest in massive scaling up and expanding productions. I think it's disingenuous for big pharma. I mean it's not unexpected but it is disingenuous for them to say that intellectual property is actually not the block and his not the obstacle right. Now that is the current nudges obstacle if the patterns would to be relaxed if the intellectual property protections would to be relaxed and they would to either be done on a voluntary basis or through a compulsory mechanism than certainly. We believe that we would be in a different situation in the next few months. I think the shameful thing and the moral question is had this actually being sorted out in addressed in twenty twenty. I do think that many people in the global south would have been facing a very different and we would have been innovate of situation. I just can you talk about the the bilateral agreements that that many countries in the global south have reached with russia and china and also the development of original vaccines in many countries including india and cuba and others. And where those stand i. m saying. Intellectual property is a broad term options and also covers know-how and the actual technology that you use to produce that vaccine and the functionally does is sort of pop. Right in saying you're yes just need our batons in order to be able to produce this also denied technology but of course being completely disingenuous in praising in that way one of the significant things that chinese and russian manufactured has done is to shed their licensing and know how and technology they've done this brazil so they manufacturing that sign. Evac manufacturing in brazil and indonesia sino-pharm has set up a huge unit in the united arab emirates. That is not only to supply the region and the country but also all allies in the arab world. The russian vaccine pudding v has production agreements with at least five different pharmaceutical companies in india. To buy something like five hundred million dollars this year as when agreements with south korea and remains with a large number of other places. So what is the distinguishing features about the they're not angels at these companies and they're in at least up to lose money but one of the distinguishing features about is that they seem to be much more flexible to enter into agreements. If the guns buy from china russia they will if they gone and the vaccine can be made in the country's striking deals with the allow that to happen and that's actually an incredibly positive steps. We could take advantage of. The problem. is that the w. h. All functions on a weird mid twentieth century axes where it considers any regulatory system outside of europe canada and the united states to be suspect or dramatically so the process of certifying these vaccines do apply billions of dollars of donor funds to buy them is incredibly complex. And they've been waiting in line. Four months this by western vaccine just breezing through the queue at the who. This is a really unfair structural problem that needs to be fixed. The african union or three hundred million dollars of the sputnik vaccine. That's actually going to cover twenty percent of the most vulnerable people in all low income countries in sub saharan africa. And it's an incredible incredible step towards getting access to the vaccine exiting the pandemic for the poorest countries on earth but now the organizations like the w job the comebacks facility and we have to recognize these vaccines exist.

"This is alive doctors and elderly people who are saying well. Why don't we get the vaccine. I i don't understand this illogical. Why has viscous oregon it And so cover. Current president francisco cost admitted. That not only is this true. But at four hundred eighty seven a fficials government employees were irregularly quote irregularly vaccinated as well in october meaning that there's a lot of fishy stuff going out in peru and so all these people reportedly utilized the chinese firm sino-pharm which helped to develop a vaccine doses. There the chinese are the one actually gave them the vaccine It's so present saga submitted. This there was a newspaper that came out in a essentially released a report saying that. Yeah these guys all these officials there they it. They took the rock. So doing that with you. Will you do that what you will people. But i'm just saying they're very bad. People and some cigars was forced to acknowledge in said that top officials quote took advantage of their position to be immune of united with the sino-pharm vaccines that came in addition to those used in clinical trials So yeah if your top officially attack got it. And so dr new brad. Hand son just wanted. The vaccine hate wearing masks the halls approving government. But we all saw in. Sussex cost actually said that He only took one dose said as has reconciliation for my bad behavior. I will not take in the second dose until everyone else has gotten both doses so very brave. But we'll see what happens with that. Anyways on dr herrmann malaga are important doctor. He's like peru doctors out here And he is in charge of the vaccine trials in peru. He said that president face. Kara had quested to be a part of the trial. See might be thinking. Let me think well you need people to be part of the trial right. What's wrong with ask you to be part of it. Yeah might as well fact that might seem brave for scar to want to participate in this But the thing is with the trial there are. These are placebos In an israel thing so what a placebo the ally sometimes doctors will strive placebo pills to people and tuesday just like a sugar pill or it. Doesn't it's not really anything it. The point of it is Psychologically recover from something by thinking. You're actually taking medicine but you're not in this please see means the music sync also so the trial of vaccinated about half people with placebo. Vaccinations in really do anything at half of got the real thing But the scar was guaranteed to get the real thing. He knew he was going to get the real thing us. News gonna get the best version of the real thing. And so while he tactically wanted to be part of the trial quota of trial. He already knew he knew what he was doing. He was being a sneaky little snake. So that's what he did. In so he got vaccinated his wife got vaccinated and apparently one other person his family to although i could not find out who exactly i'm so dr malaga said it's hot. It's not unethical guys. It's not it's in fact it's perfectly ethical of. Because he needs sue you know he sa- goss feeds presence across needs to be able to fight the pandemic. He's a brave man but he always gonna fight it if he's constantly hiding from cova. No no we got vaccinate him. So he's able to lead the that maybe he then that's the reason why he should get the vaccine. So this has led our so people can buy like okay. That's great but i still want the vaccine. Now understand why he deserves it. More than me is isn't to lead the country. I ain't to lead my life that's important to It's so this has led to people such as elizabeth a stent and pilar mazzetti. The foreign health ministers approve respectively. Or should i say former foreign health ministers resigning from their posts on friday and sunday. Sue them is they also were in on it and not good for them. So so they're out of the job Sagawa's not resigned yet. He's still president but we'll see what happens. So the new health minister oscar gardai. He he is. He said that investigation has been opened. Find up all to find out who all the officials who were getting the vaccine. And what's find out who they are listed impossibly push type of legal charge on them. Start really clear what he meant by by that. Exactly so dr Doctors have protest are starting to protest around the country. Been over three hundred doctors of die through the current virus in their kind of agree that they did not get the vaccine. But these other these top officials could get it. They don't understand because actually fighting the virus itself. That's why it's really bad. And that's why people are resigning because yeah this is not a good luck for the peruvian government. That's that's all. I'll say about that all right but before we get started. Let me tell you about a free platform called anchor. So what is anchor. Well as. I said it's free.

"Welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me. Andrew miller it has been a long winding and deeply tedious road. And it's not over yet. The person who believes we have heard the last of brexit is possessed of a degree of optimism. Which should be studied by scientists specifically psychiatrists but after four and a half years one referendum three prime ministers to general elections they quantity of delays and extensions which we lost track and uncountable harsh and or petty words. A post brexit' trade deal signed into british law taking effect at twenty three hundred. Gmt tonight as the brexit transition period ends. This law was a result of an extremely brisk fourteen. Our parliamentary process. So how do our european partners. If that's what they still are now see. Things will joining me from. Brussels is also lee. Mackie yama director of the european center for international political economy Obviously also the eu is a vast and diverse place. But is there a way of characterizing. The us response to brexit finally having happened. Well we in brussel tend to be quite central dettori about her achievement but we are obviously highly ambivalent about this one Obviously as a good or bad devos We have lost one tenth of our budget. One sixth of our gdp and perhaps the only european country that was that had strategic pap- capable to that goes outside of europe so obviously we are both weakened but in the end there is a sense of relief that we can finally move on and actually the o- with other more than two issues than actually on domestic divorce. If we look at the deal itself does the e you at least think you know unsatisfactory though the big picture is does the you at least got the best of this deal. Well here's the thing When it comes to trade negotiation no one everything they want. They may ask right them my scream. They don't but in the end there's a deep sense of realism. That a bow side needs to get what they want and in this sense. I think it's fair to say that europe got most of its priorities and understanding of some of the more grandstanding issues. For example like level playing field was perhaps unrealistic to begin with. There's not a single trade agreement in the world that commits a one side of the agreement to the rules of the other aside. So now i think in the end i both. Uk in the you got pretty much what they want. But most the bull for the u. continued duty-free and quota-free access to the uk market and the uk consumers was a much bigger priority that we wanted to actually portrayed in the media. I mean it was never going to be the case that the eu was going to allow the uk to have as good deal as it had while it was actually a member of the organization but over and above that has been well. Has there been any desire on the part to to punish the uk somewhat as it leaves. Indeed it was a It wasn't important. It wasn't important objective. I think for especially france and germany in order to keep the house together. Keep the family together to make sure that any way of leaving would be Well frankly speaking quite expensive and the has been one of the but also on the other side. It was actually caused that at least hardcore brexit. Here's what ready to take and then actually made. A negotiation is much more difficult for brussels because in many respects it was a little bit like playing strip here with an exhibition or who actually wanted to get was actually ready to take all the costs so in in that sense many of the leverage that the eu was trying to use against the uk simply didn't work but what does the u now anticipate. I guess what should british people now anticipate that the uk is going to learn the hard way over coming weeks and months because for all the new regimen that comes into effect a little less than eleven hours from now. This isn't going to be the end of the brexit process is now Many of the most Sentenced sticking points are still outstanding The the final deal on fisheries is still to be worked out and of course as they were often saying. The negotiation devil is in the details and How some of the mechanism that is anticipated industry. The agreement is not years really style. So there's plenty of room pool while disagreements but also in addition and there's no guarantee so far about regulatory conformity for example financial services on pregnancy that offensive interests for the u. k. and These are actually out on of any trade agreement which basically means that the e you would at some point decide is uk low still compliant with eu standards and so they will be a lot of horse trading over sectorial issues like banking and retail. Another service. it's areas going forward and not to mention of course products standard of various kinds of everything from cucumbers stroke trump. That needs to be negotiated. But what's your sense of. How the plans to deal with the uk in coming years because if you think you know years even decades down the track do you think the records. The uk now is a permanently lost cause or is there hope or anticipation that one day. It'll be back. Well the The castle optimism All let's a wistfulness that has been expressed by you leaders. I think genuine many of you leaders have either studied in london of work in london Or have a genuine won't feelings about the uk it's not just because over. Its consumer demand strategic capable that we won't uk in europe. It is because he belongs in europe and actually i would say that To the extent that braxton has caused an identity crisis in the uk Your can also see a similar counter reaction to that in brussels If a feminine members only said. I don't want to be part of this family. It causes you to reflect on who you all and so i think it's perhaps not for this current generation of leaders to figure out how you came might come back but it is probably somewhere in the stores for a much wiser hysterically to figure out how you end. The uk will basically 'cause pop again but one thing is sesame. I think that e you has not really ready a. Someone who did not really want to be a member who didn't want to become a annex or a Affiliated member like no way or switzerland or liechtenstein but wanted have a completely different relationship like almost like a satellite that circles around the of without necessarily and this is a that we have to invent and e you policy has always been dynamic and we make up things as we go along and this is exactly what i think is happening now.
