My first ever Convocation address!
@mcgillu & congratulations to all graduates!
In this post,
@CKyobutungi @JuliaE_Robinson and I share our hopes for @PLOSGPH
We know this is not easy. We might fall short or get it wrong. But we hope many of you will join us in trying to chart a new path to equity, diversity & inclusion in GH!https://speakingofmedicine.plos.org/2021/06/14/plos-global-public-health-charting-a-new-path-towards-equity-diversity-and-inclusion-in-global-health/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=newjournals&utm_content=gpheicblog …
Read about our vision for PLOS Global Public Health. As you can see, we are very determined to create some balance in an unequal system - or die trying. We will try and sometimes we will fail; we will make mistakes and we'll learn from them - together

In my Convocation address last week, I lamented the lack of leadership by our leaders.
#G7Summit is further confirmation.
Our biggest hope is youth who care about global solidarity & citizenship.https://twitter.com/mcgillu/status/1403438133157318656 …
"In an era of multiplying vaccine technologies, it might be the case that vaccines, like people, prove more effective when they work together"
This requires a Pulitzer. What
@Rukmini is doing is systematically exposing the hollowness of India's official covid statistics, one state at a time. MP under reporting factor over 40, now Andhra Pradesh is over 30.
At this rate, two million + excess deaths in wave 2 for India.https://twitter.com/Rukmini/status/1404115649568284674 …
Whether it is Covid vaccine equity or climate change, we know the path. But our leaders are refusing to walk the path.pic.twitter.com/IJ8pczYJvW
"The current model relying on charitable leadership from the G7 needs to be replaced with a model that is more inclusive of the wider membership of the UN"

On Friday, Canada said it would provide "up to 100 million vaccine doses" to lower-income countries. Today it disclosed the actual number: 13 million. No details on when or where they will go. And more than half of the 13 million will be Novavax -- not yet approved by Canada.https://twitter.com/pwaldieGLOBE/status/1404186740651397120 …
India's estimated excess deaths could be close to 3 million. What about the countries among the global top 50 ex India?

By the time
#G7 & global leaders wake up to the Covid catastrophe, we would have run out of Greek alphabets for new variants
Canada is the chief hoarder among all Covid19 vaccine hoarders.
