G7 leaders have pledged to donate a billion Covid-19 vaccines to poorer countries. But some say the proposal is too little, too late.
US President Joe Biden has already pledged 500-million doses, while his British counterpart has pledged 100-million.
Canada is also expected to pledge 100-million jabs.
The leaders of the world’s seven largest economies say a joint approach is the best way to help the world recover.
But, campaigners say the donations are not nearly enough.
Oxfam says the world needs at least 11-billion doses.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres welcomed the plan but says it’s not enough.
He’s calling on leaders to give vaccine distribution the priority of a war economy.
President Cyril Ramaphosa is one of four non-G7 members to be invited to the meeting.
He is expected to continue his campaign for equitable vaccine distribution and a temporary waiver of intellectual property rights on vaccines.
