In a recent interview with AfricaLive Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, vice-chancellor of Makerere University, spoke of the impact of vaccine apartheid in Uganda.

‘Vaccine Apartheid’ was the term given to the inequitable distribution of vaccines leading to lower vaccination rates in developing countries like Uganda.
