UNICEF covers the upcoming Access to Vaccines Index
Margot de Graaff from the UNICEF Netherlands magazine interviews Jayasree K. Iyer and Suzanne Wolf regarding the pharmaceutical industry, the Access to Medicines Index and the upcoming Access to Vaccines Index.
The interview in Dutch highlights the work done by the Access to Medicine Foundation. It touches upon the challenges faced by the pharmaceutical industry and how naming and shaming does not work. In the interview, Jayasree and Suzanne also talk about the need for the Access to Vaccines Index and the organisations and experts consulted during the methodology development (e.g. UNICEF, Gavi The Vaccine Alliance, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Developing Country Vaccine Manufacturers Network (DCVMN)).
