Sub-Saharan Africa is facing a dearth of vaccines and will be reliant in 2021 on external vaccine supply, particularly through pooled procurement schemes.

In this episode, our economics and risk teams discuss everything from vaccine supply and rollout timelines. economic implications and recovery efforts, and finally vaccine diplomacy.
