COVID-19 has exposed the weaknesses within our social, political and economic systems. It has also shone a spotlight on the stark inequalities that exist within and between countries which undermine global health and threaten progress toward vaccine coverage, let alone Universal Health Coverage.

This month we also noted International Women's Day on March 8 and will recognize World Water Day on March 22.
