The inputs by panelists and ensuing discussion will focus on the following:

  2. The specific case of South Africa in respect of vaccine procurement and overall roll-out plan (in the context of deep structural inequalities and the state of public and private healthcare)
  3. The key sources of widespread vaccine skepticism/opposition and how best to deal with these.
