Letters to the Editor

Canada cares

Dear Editor,
I am thrilled with the announcement by the Federal Government of support to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. If there is something that we have learned from the Covid crisis, it is the need to come up with global solutions to challenges such as pandemics. 
Let’s face it, global health and economic impact are clearly connected. Now, more than ever, it is important to strengthen the organizations with existing infrastructure and concrete game-plans to reach the most remote and difficult places on our shrinking planet. 
I am proud to hail from a country with a world vision. Perhaps while we wait with baited breath for the development of a Covid-19 vaccine, we can develop a sense of empathy for people who still await vaccines for Tuberculosis and Polio. Anything is possible with political will. Let us leave no one behind!
