Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Varsha Gandikota-Nellutla about how the Global South demanding vaccine internationalism.

As representatives from the 7 wealthiest nations on the planet failed during their recent meeting to waive vaccine patents during a deadly global pandemic, leaders from the Global South met online recently to push back. The Summit for Vaccine Internationalism, convened by the group Progressive International, drew spokespeople from nations like Venezuela, India, and Vietnam, and left-leaning leaders from Western nations like the UK’s Jeremy Corbyn and Greece’s Yanis Varoufakis. Participants called for a “new international health order” to overcome “vaccine apartheid.”
