Proposed Chinese measures to help equitable and reasonable distribution of vaccines

Currently, the virus has frequently mutated and the epidemic has been delayed and repeated. It is necessary to speed up vaccination and make the construction of the herd immune barrier ahead of the spread of virus mutations. However, the global unfair distribution of vaccines is still prominent. Practices such as “vaccine nationalism” have created an “immune gap” between different countries and groups, and have a serious impact on the global effort to build a unified line of defense against the epidemic.

At this BRICS meeting, President Xi Jinping announced China’s measures to combat the new crown epidemic and proposed an initiative to maintain fairness and accessibility and strengthen international cooperation in vaccines. China provides vaccines and corresponding technical support to countries in need, and makes positive contributions to promoting equitable distribution of vaccines and strengthening global anti-epidemic cooperation. Up to now, China has provided more than 1 billion doses of vaccines and stock solutions to more than 100 countries and international organizations, and will strive to provide 2 billion doses of vaccines throughout the year.

In this regard, Ruan Zongze, executive vice president of the China Institute of International Studies, said that these measures proposed by China will promote the fair and reasonable distribution of vaccines and benefit the global fight against the epidemic, especially in developing countries.

Fulfill solemn promises and advance global anti-epidemic cooperation

The WHO routine press conference for new coronary pneumonia held a few days ago pointed out that high-income countries had pledged to donate more than 1 billion doses of vaccine, but Only less than 15% of the dose was fulfilled.

For global anti-epidemic cooperation, not to write a blank check is the call of the WHO and a commitment that China has always adhered to. President Xi Jinping put forward a package plan for cooperation in fighting the epidemic in his speech at the first “cloud meeting” of BRICS leaders last year. In less than a year, many of these measures have been officially implemented. For many developing countries, the Chinese vaccine is the first batch of vaccines they have obtained. In all aspects of vaccine development, production, and distribution, China adopts an open and cooperative attitude, and actively responds to all countries that request vaccine cooperation from China. The Chinese government also strongly supports Chinese vaccine companies in transferring technology to developing countries and initiating cooperative vaccine production.

“China’s efforts to fight the epidemic in solidarity are China’s practical actions to implement its commitment to making vaccines as a global public product.” Ruan Zongze said that the BRICS are emerging market countries and vast developing countries. Representative of the country. China abides by its commitments and joins hands with the BRICS countries to play a leading role in anti-epidemic cooperation.

Show the responsibility of the great powers and jointly build a community with a shared future for mankind

Chairman Xi Jinping’s speech at this meeting fully demonstrated China’s role as a major country in promoting international anti-epidemic cooperation and cooperation with all parties. The firm determination to jointly overcome the challenge of the epidemic and the practical actions to promote the fairness and accessibility of vaccines show that the leaders of major countries care about the safety of the world and pay attention to the well-being of the people of all countries.

If all countries in the world want to overcome the epidemic, the best way is to unite. Only by unity can they exert their greatest strength. Ruan Zongze said that strengthening the cooperation between the health departments of the BRICS countries and the international anti-epidemic cooperation is mainly based on the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind to build a human health and health community. At the same time, this also reflects the determination and conviction of the BRICS countries to jointly respond to the epidemic.

“Everyone is safe. Only when we have our own security can we have common security.” Ruan Zongze pointed out that the new crown epidemic has made the concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind more deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and its significance has also been broader in the international community. Agree. The measures and actions taken by China reflect the responsibility of a major country and are the best interpretation of China’s advocacy and practice of the concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind.
