The world's 125 poorest countries (2.5b people) have received zero covid vaccine doses to date. The 85 poorest countries project vaccination in 2023/24. This is #VaccineApartheid.

It's not that poor countries can't make their own vaccines. The Global South has a *lot* of vaccine production capacity. The problem is Big Pharma, which refuses to transfer the patents and know-how to repurpose those facilities for mRNA production.

trans, request for info 

Does anyone have recommendations for readings i should send to parents of trans kids? It's been a while since I've thought about intro trans content, and the parent perspective is not something I'm familiar with.

Thanks in advance, boosts appreciated!
