This is the second episode in the two-part series on vaccine policy in the country.
What should a country, state or local government do in case only a limited quantity of vaccines are available? How can a government body ensure even the poorest people living in remote areas access the COVID-19 vaccines. Is the Indian government managing to reach out to everyone in the country eligible to be vaccinated?
Suno India’s Menaka Rao reached out to Sulakshana Nandi, joint convenor of the Jan Swasthya Abhiyaan who has been working organisations of poor, tribal people in Chhattisgarh for years now. She is also a health researcher and has studied inequities in healthcare. We also briefly featured prof R Ramakumar, a developmental economist from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, in Mumbai.
