A vacina contra a COVID 19 deve abranger todo cidadão incluindo as mulheres nas comunidades rurais com pouco ou sem acesso à informação por limitações de várias ordens.
Os estados Africanos devem providenciar recursos e mecanismos para atingir as minorias étnicas e grupos marginalizados para acesso a vacina e imunização de toda população. Só com este esforço os estados da SADC estariam a contribuir para maior prevenção da pandemia.
