The Race to Find a Vaccine
Unlike previous pandemics of this century, COVID-19 has touched every corner of the world and is proving deadlier than SARS, H1N1, and MERS. Listen to a recording of The Recovery Project livestream on the principles and progress-to-date in COVID-19 vaccine development in different regions of the world, and what roles education, awareness and health systems play.
We were joined by Dr. Alan Bernstein, president and CEO of CIFAR and founding head of the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise, and Dr. Shabir Madhi, professor of vaccinology at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg and co-founder and co-director of the African Leadership Initiative for Vaccinology Expertise, for a discussion moderated by the Hon. Anne McLellan, Senior Advisor at Bennett Jones and Board Advisor at Canada 2020, former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada and former Minister of Health.
