Africa Should Bargain Hard for COVID Vaccine Equity: Lessons from Indonesia during Avian Flu
The Republic of Congo received just over 300,000 doses of the COVID vaccines through the COVAX Facility in August 2021. The international COVAX initiative aimed at guaranteeing global access to the vaccines, recently announced that it was being forced to slash planned deliveries to Africa, by around 150 million doses this year. The scheme is now expected to deliver 470 million doses through the end of December. These will be enough to protect just 17 per cent of the continent, far below the 40 per cent target, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Bob Dole Lived With a Disability for Decades. Here ’s How It Shaped His Life and Legacy
Bob Dole was just 21 years old when he suffered the injuries that would change his life. In April 1945, while stationed in Italy during WWII, the young soldier was struck by enemy fire. As a result of his wounds, Dole was permanently left without feeling in his right hand and arm, which measured more than two inches shorter than his left after reparative surgeries; part of his left hand was also left numb. Dole, who died on Sunday at the age of 98, would live with and be shaped by the aftermath of those injuries in the years that followed, including the 30 he spent as a U.S. senator from Kansas.

New Study Explores if a Vaccine Can Prevent Breast Cancer
Harnessing the immune system to target cancer has long resided on doctors’ wish lists, with very little promise of becoming reality. Because cancer cells are normal cells that mutate to grow out of control, directing the body to destroy these cells is a risky endeavor with potentially dangerous outcomes. Advances in immunotherapy, however, have led to powerful drugs that can help immune cells better distinguish between cancer cells and healthy ones, and researchers are now testing the idea of whether the immune system can be trained to recognize and destroy breast cancer cells in the same way that it dispatches virus...
