To contain the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of people living in conflict zones will need to be vaccinated. But what will it take to negotiate “pandemic ceasefires” when warring factions have largely abandoned conventional laws of war? Our expert panel will look at how to get life-saving vaccines to people living amid violence and political instability.
