*Can Vaccine Nationalism & Vaccine Diplomacy Co-exist?*
Professor Aihwa Ong


The global demand for Covid-19 vaccines has sparked a discourse that
science nationalism is incompatible with "global health." In a time of
pandemic crisis, fears of national sequestration of biotech technologies
are intensifying. I suggest, however, that the biosciences as state project
and as global public good are complexly entangled and politically fraught
for donor and recipient nations alike.

While pandemics are a global health threat, the technology, production,
deployment and acceptance of vaccines are invariably a matter of politics.
I will highlight the gradients between the owning/making and the giving;
the trade-offs for low-income countries; and whether global health entities
Covax & the Quad lessen or produce new segregations in health access.

Here are some of the timezones
1PM - 2:30 PM (AEST/ GMT+10) Melbourne
8:30 AM - 10 AM (GMT + 5:30) Hyderabad
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (GMT + 8) Singapore
