Gaps in health equity: Insights from history, lessons from COVID-19, and ideas for the future
Unequal access to the Covid-19 vaccine magnifies long-standing gaps in health equity. Will this crisis propel us into a new discussion of health equity, and change our understanding of the global partnerships needed to achieve it? And how can we draw on lessons from the past in order to design a more equitable future?

The panelists for the 10th Yale Development Dialogue are leading voices in understanding the health and healthcare challenges low-income countries face. They have been at the forefront of the global health agenda, having held senior positions in organisations such as the International Rescue Committee, pioneered methods of increasing healthcare access, and written extensively on the history of public health.
