Where the Health Are We? : Episode 4 - COVID-19 Vaccine Financing

1 March 2022

Danielle Serebro of CABRI speaks to Chinemerem Nwokemodo-Ihejirika, Clinical Research Coordinator II, Massachusetts General Hospital, USA, for the fourth episode of "Where the Health Are We?" - a podcast aimed at giving a more complete view of the state of healthcare in Africa through insightful interviews with experts who understand the complex and nuanced issues.

The pandemic came with its own financial burdens, as many governments scrambled for the funds to support their people and finance the vaccine rollouts. African governments, especially, found themselves in a precarious position created by preexisting fiscal constraints and highly dynamic vaccine markets. However, they have been able to fund their COVID-19 vaccination campaigns through external and domestic channels.

In this episode, Danielle Serebro, shares how African countries have financed the COVID-19 vaccine acquisition and rollouts, and how African countries can sustainably finance future vaccines.

Through "Where the Heath Are We?", Chinemerem Nwokemodo-Ihejirika and co-producer Brian Fleischer, hope to inspire their young African peers, to dream of, demand and strive towards a better Africa by presenting to listeners across the world with a more complete story of the continent.
