The People’s Vaccine Alliance (PVA) Africa is part of a global movement of organisations and networks supported by Nobel Laureates, Heads of State, health experts, economists, world leaders, faith leaders and activists working together to ensure Africans everywhere have equitable access to vaccines.
Housed in the African Alliance, PVA Africa’s role is to ensure that the voices, priorities and work of African activists and communities, in all of our diversity, are meaningfully reflected in global healthcare. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued to ensure that interventions, strategies, and approaches to the access of COVID-19 vaccines for Africans continue to be addressed on our African terms. We do this by ensuring that the work of indigenous organisations in all five regions of the continent is amplified, and supported and shapes our collective advocacy for a truly decolonised response, for this pandemic and the next.
Our primary focus areas are health systems strengthening, ensuring equity in access to COVID-19 tools for communities in the global South, strengthening engagement with relevant stakeholders and accelerating an approach for a decolonised approach response.
