Monitoring G20 contributions to global Covid-19 vaccine equity: issues and options
28 March 2022
Briefing/policy papers
Key messages
A focus on the systematic monitoring of G20 country policy responses to Covid-19 facilitates better understanding of the extent to which they have supported health equity globally and where they fall short and highlights actions G20 countries can take to place equity at the front and centre of recovery efforts.
Any efforts to construct a composite index must consider carefully how to treat the indicators, weight indicators and dimensions, and aggregate the data; the brief outlines options and their implications.
Efforts to monitor G20’s Covid-19 response are beset by limitations, not least the absence of indicators on actions no member country has taken, such as compelling pharmaceutical companies to share vaccines, knowledge and patents with poorer countries.
