The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that diseases have no boundaries and is impacting the lives of people around the world. As global health equity remains a top priority and health care providers continue to help their patients fight the virus, lower-income countries are not receiving the same opportunities for care.
Henry Schein Cares Foundation has partnered with the WHO Foundation to amplify and contribute to the Go Give One Initiative, a COVID-19 vaccine campaign with no borders. The money raised by the campaign goes to an international financial mechanism called GAVI COVAX Advanced Market Commitment (AMC), which buys COVID-19 vaccines for the world, prioritizing those who need them the most in countries that cannot afford them. COVAX is the vaccines pillar of a ground-breaking global collaboration to accelerate the development, production, and equitable global access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines. It is co-led by GAVI, the vaccine alliance, the WHO and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), alongside key delivery partner UNICEF.
The Go Give One Initiative calls on everyone, everywhere to play their part in helping to vaccinate the world against COVID-19.
To do your part, The WHO Foundation is calling on the public, employers, local charities, and national governments to raise awareness around the initiative.
Together we can vaccinate millions of people around the world, protecting our loved ones and our communities, and freeing us all from COVID-19.
