Make COVID 19 Vaccine A Global Common Good | Pledge Now
113 World Leaders including 19 Nobel Laureates, 36 former Chief of State and Governments, Political Leaders, Artistes, International NGOs and Institutions have signed a call initiated by Yunus Centre to declare COVID-19 Vaccines as a global common good.
The unified appeal is urging action from governments, foundations, philanthropists and social businesses to come forward to produce and/or distribute the vaccines all over the world for free. We invite all social, political, and health entities to re-affirm our collective responsibility for the protection of ALL vulnerable persons without any discrimination whatsoever.
The COVID-19 pandemic is clearly exposing the strength and weaknesses of healthcare systems in every country and highlights the obstacles and inequities in gaining access to healthcare. The effectiveness of the upcoming vaccination campaign will depend on its universality.
The signatories are pleading to all world leaders including the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Director General of the World Health Organization, religious leaders, social and moral leaders, leaders of research laboratories and pharmaceutical companies and the media to join hands and ensure that in the case of a Covid-19 vaccine, we have a global consensus that it must be deployed as a global common good.
We invite everyone to join the pledge at WWW.VACCINECOMMONGOOD.ORG .

Quotes from Professor Yunus
We prepare our students for jobs and careers, but we don't teach them to think as individuals about what kind of world they would create.
All human beings are born entrepreneurs. Some get a chance to unleash that capacity. Some never got the chance, never knew that he or she has that capacity.
I have always said that human beings are multidimensional beings. Their happiness comes from many sources, not, as our current economic framework assumes, just from making money.
Professor Yunus has been promoting the concept of Grameen social businesses for a long time with the belief that this model will address the problems unresolved by the present capitalist system. Social business is a Non-dividend Company, which returns the investor’s money over time and is entirely dedicated to achieving social goals. The ultimate goal of Yunus Centre is to send poverty to museums. It strives to engage students, individuals and organizations in the social business movement through workshops, internships programs, immersion programs, projects, etc. to achieve the goal.
The Immersion Program is a one-month intensive program, which aims to provide young minds with an opportunity to learn about the concept of social business, as well as the philosophy of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus.Read More
