Vaccinating South Asia against COVID-19 will provide the surest path to economic recovery, but many practical issues in vaccinating South Asia remain to be addressed. Join us over two days of virtual sessions featuring academic paper discussions, a keynote lecture by Nobel Laureate Michael Kremer, and an expert policy panel among academics, policy advisors, health policy experts, and civil society leaders to discuss issues related to the allocation of scarce vaccine and equity, and the fiscal impacts that purchasing and delivering a COVID-19 vaccine broadly will have on South Asian governments.
