Decade of Health started this petition to UK Government

To keep us, our families, and the NHS protected from COVID-19, new variants, and future pandemics, and to get all our lives back to normal as soon as possible, we are calling for the UK Government to play its part in the worldwide effort to fight COVID-19 and put tackling disease outbreaks everywhere at the top of its agenda.

The UK’s successful vaccine programme means we will soon have more doses than we need. We are calling for the government to ensure those doses are used for the benefit of those who most need them around the world, and to prevent more waves of this pandemic.

This is just common sense. If COVID-19 is a problem somewhere in the world, it’s going to be a problem for all of us. And the next pandemic could be even worse. Travel, trade, and our safety and freedoms at home will all be in doubt. 

By supporting the Decade of Health campaign, I am asking the UK Government to:

  • Continue to lead global efforts to ensure people everywhere – especially the most vulnerable – get access to COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments
  • Support British science and innovation to find new tests, treatments, and vaccines against COVID-19, emerging infectious diseases, and future pandemics, and
  • Play its part in ensuring the world is better prepared for future pandemics so we never have to face lockdowns and other extreme measures again. 

Thanks to a global effort and British scientist Edward Jenner who invented the smallpox vaccine the UK helped eliminate smallpox from around the world. Now is the time to do the same with COVID-19 and other infectious diseases – today and in the future. 

The Decade of Health is a campaign by organisations across the UK who are working to make the world healthier and safer, through innovation and collaboration. The campaign was established by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
