Indonesia, UNICEF sign agreement on COVID-19 vaccine procurement under COVAX Facility

first_imgThe Health Ministry and the United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) signed on Wednesday an agreement on the procurement of COVID-19 vaccine under the COVAX Facility, a global COVID-19 vaccine allocation plan co-led by the World Health Organization (WHO) that aims to help buy and fairly distribute the vaccine.Through this agreement, Indonesia could ensure access to COVAX’s COVID-19 vaccines once they were available, Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said.”Since the very beginning of the pandemic, Indonesia has consistently underlined the importance of safe, effective and affordable vaccines […] We developed cooperation through bilateral and multilateral tracks [for vaccine procurement],” Retno said on Wednesday.”It is my strong hope that through this memorandum of understanding [MoU], once [COVID-19] vaccine is available we won’t have any delay in delivering it to the people,” she added.UNICEF representative to Indonesia Debora Comini said all countries participating in the COVAX scheme would have special access to the vaccine at affordable prices, once it is available.”All participating countries will have special access at affordable prices, Indonesia is going to be part of this very important initiative,” Debora said.Read also: China coronavirus vaccine may be ready for public in NovemberShe explained that the MoU signing would also allow domestically manufactured COVID-19 vaccines, such as the “Merah Putih” vaccine, to be placed in the international market through UNICEF’s supply division.Through the agreement, Indonesia will also have access to vaccines for other diseases such as the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) against pneumococcal disease.”This [PCV] vaccine could save 10,000 children per year in Indonesia,” she said.According to Retno, Indonesia would receive financial assistance for COVAX’s COVID-19 vaccine procurement through the Official Development Assistance (ODA) mechanism.”We’re maintaining intensive communication with the COVAX Facility and the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization [GAVI], including about [the vaccine’s] price, availability, etc. We predict that this vaccine will be available in 2021,” she said.”With the ODA financial assistance, the vaccine would be more affordable than through other means of procurement,” she added.Read also: Jokowi forms national team to accelerate vaccine developmentSeventy-six wealthy nations are now committed to joining the COVAX Facility, including Japan, Norway and Germany.Besides the WHO, COVAX is also co-led by GAVI and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), and is designed to discourage national governments from hoarding COVID-19 vaccine and to focus on first vaccinating the most high-risk people in every country.Its backers say this strategy should lead to lower vaccine costs for everyone and a swifter end to the pandemic that has claimed some 926,000 lives globally as per Tuesday.Wealthy countries that join COVAX will finance the vaccine purchases from their national budgets, and will partner with 92 poorer nations supported through voluntary donations to the plan to ensure vaccines are delivered equitably.COVAX’s aim is to procure and deliver 2 billion doses of approved vaccines by the end of 2021. It currently has nine COVID-19 candidate vaccines in its portfolio, which employ a range of different technologies and scientific approaches.Topics :last_img read more

Plan to fine drunks in Wellington makes progress

first_imgOneNews 12 Sept 2013A decision whether to make public drunkeness in Wellington, including Courtenay Place, an offence will now go to a full council vote.The idea is one of a raft of proposals to deal with problem drinking in the capital’s bars.The proposal was passed by the council’s Strategy and Policy Committee today and will next be debated at a full council meeting.If passed, it is thought to be the first time since the 1970s that public drunkeness was an offence in the city.Wellington City Councillor Iona Pannett says the idea will not work.“If it was ever to be made into law, you’d have to arrest most of the city. Most people drink and get intoxicated,” she said.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/plan-fine-drunks-in-wellington-makes-progress-5581302last_img read more

Kal Penn visits USC to raise Democratic support

first_imgActors Kal Penn and Melissa Fitzgerald joined forces Tuesday night to encourage students to support Democratic incumbent Sen. Barbara Boxer in the Nov. 2 midterm election.Boxer briefs · Actress Melissa Fitzgerald, Marlene Towns and actor Kal Penn (left to right) speak at an event hosted by the USC College Democrats on Tuesday to raise support for Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is running for re-election against Carly Fiorina. – Daniel Wang | Daily Trojan The actors were joined by Sen. Curren Price (D.-Calif.) and USC College Democrats faculty adviser Marlene Towns  in a discussion that was hosted by the USC College Democrats in The Forum in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. Discussion topics ranged from Penn’s transition into politics to the political climate in the war-torn country of Uganda.The focus remained, however, on dispelling the idea of an “enthusiasm gap” among young Democrats and on spreading the word on the importance of voting.“Young people came out to vote [in 2008] because of issues that are now solved,” Penn said, referring to the war in Iraq and the healthcare overhaul. “If you have friends that aren’t sure why they should go vote, remind them of these.”Fitzgerald, who played a White House staff member on The West Wing, said she only campaigns for candidates she respects.“I do consider it a public service,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m inspired by issues and by people who remain strong in their own convictions.”Penn, who said he is registered as an independent, said he rejects the term “politics” and prefers to call his political involvement a public service.“If we just get rid of the nonsense of political parties, I think we’d be a lot farther than we are today,” Penn said.Price also stressed the youth vote, noting that most young people carry political undertones.“Don’t lose your enthusiasm or your spirit of adventure,” Price said. “Pursue those things that you have an interest in and make that a real calling. Anything you have an interest in has a political tinge to it and I encourage you to not lose that enthusiasm.”Penn also spoke about his career as an actor, saying it was his belief in making the country better that ultimately led him to leave acting and enter politics.“I used to do teen comedies,” Penn said, “so no one took me seriously before. The two worlds are completely different.”Fitzgerald, on the other hand, said her compelling television role allowed for her voice to be taken more seriously in the political world.“I was very fortunate to be involved in a show that was a public service,” Fitzgerald said. “I got so many amazing experiences and opportunities. … People take me a little more seriously because of that show.”Towns, who served as the event’s moderator, also took time to encourage everyone to go out and vote.“Go online, look at voter guides,” Towns said. “Do you guys know that little ‘I voted’ sticker? A lot of times, that’s a reminder. Corny as it may seem, wear it.”USC College Democrats encouraged students to show up two hours early and volunteer for the chance to meet Penn and take a picture with him before the program. About 30 student volunteers reached 2,166 registered voters through a Get Out The Vote phone bank.last_img read more
