G-7: PM calls for open vaccine chains, ‘one world, one health’

The Prime Minister highlighted India’s “whole of society” approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of government, industry and civil society. Modi sought the G-7’s support for a proposal moved by “India and South Africa at the WTO for a TRIPS (Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) waiver on Covid-related technologies”. Sources said Australian PM Scott Morrison and others came out strongly in support of this. He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed the country’s willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

This came days after French President Emanuel Macron supported India’s demand for lifting restrictions on export of raw materials needed to manufacture vaccines. According to sources, Modi said there should be “one earth, one health” approach, which was supported by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Sources said India’s emphasis on keeping “open supply chains for vaccine raw materials and components to help enhance vaccine production received widespread support”.

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger – Health’, focussed on global recovery from the pandemic and strengthening resilience against future pandemics. This is an oblique reference to the lack of transparency displayed by China in dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak and the World Health Organisation’s poor leadership as the crisis engulfed the world.

The UK Government’s Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, and Melinda French Gates will address the leaders at the Carbis Bay Summit, setting out how governments, industry, international organisations and others should work together to speed up the world’s response to future pandemic threats. India has engaged closely with the G-7 on health, climate and environment, digital technology and economic resilience, officials said. On Saturday, the G-7 leaders are discussing the ‘100 Days Mission’ — an ambitious mission to have safe and effective vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics within 100 days of a future pandemic threat being identified.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had invited Modi to attend the outreach component of the G-7 Summit, along with Australia, South Korea and South Africa. Modi is scheduled to speak at two more sessions on Sunday. Modi expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G-7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of Covid infections in India.
