All Fellows and members of the public are invited to this free event to be held online and inperson (limited).
The effects of COVID-19 is not limited to the medical challenges, deaths, and suffering brought on by the spread of the virus. Various inequities at a national, international, and societal level have been exposed. The advent of efficacious vaccines has revealed possibly the beginning of the end but has also laid bare deep questions of access, equity, and the ethics of control over distribution. Profound questions are raised about the values to be respected when it comes to the distribution of the vaccines, and the terms for their distribution across the globe.
In this discussion, chaired by The Hon RD Nicholson AO KCSJ, moral and political philosopher Dr Lachlan Umbers will speak to these issues and related questions.
