Qatar allocated $20 mn to help poor countries get access to COVID-19 vaccines, says envoy

Qatar has affirmed the importance of spreading values of equality, cooperation and transparency in efforts to address the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic crisis.

Qatar said it is important that everyone obtains a fair opportunity to get the vaccine to contain and eradicate the virus in a safe and effective manner, without any kind of discrimination and away from nationalism and ethnic affiliations.

“Qatar sought to limit the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic since the beginning by providing various kinds of international aid. It also sought to support international efforts related to fair and equal access to vaccines by supporting initiatives that help low-income countries to get equal opportunities in obtaining them,” Qatar’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Office in Geneva Ambassador HE Ali Khalfan Al Mansouri said during the annual high-level panel discussion on human rights.He said Qatar allocated $20 million to support Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) and the COVAX mechanism to ensure fair and equal access to vaccines by 92 Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible countries.
