Health equity is undoubtedly a global challenge, with some of the most vulnerable communities in the poorest countries bearing the brunt of the injustice. Improving access to basic health care needs, including vaccination against deadly infectious diseases, is a critical step to improving lives and creating a safe world for us all. How does health inequity affect your community? Would you recognize it among your own family, your friends, or your neighborhood? How can local solutions to Covid-19 help us fight the pandemic at a global scale? Health equity isn’t just a distant problem; it is a very local problem.


On this episode of Force Multiplier Baratunde sits with two leaders working tirelessly to provide equitable health care for all. Aurélia Nguyen, Managing Director of the COVAX Facility at Gavi, shares how a global coalition of public and private organizations is transforming the lives of individuals, helping to boost the economies of lower-income countries, and making the world safer for everyone. Dr. Dominic Mack, the director of Morehouse School of Medicine National Center for Primary Care, describes how a cross-sector partnership uses critical resources and data on Covid-19, to connect families to culturally and linguistically appropriate information and services.
