Diplomacy on Vaccine (DoV): A Vaccine-Consumer Countries’ Perspective on Vaccine Access and Equity

Diplomacy on Vaccine (DoV): A Vaccine-Consumer Countries’ Perspective on Vaccine Access and Equity AbstractInequality in global health is not only in vaccine access and distribution among countries but also in the gap in vaccine diplomacy discourse. The concept of vaccine diplomacy emphasizes how the producer countries use vaccines as a tool of diplomacy and soft power instrument. Therefore, the vaccine-consumer countries are less represented in this concept. This study analyzes and proposes the concept of diplomacy on vaccines (DoV), reflecting the perspective of consumer countries. In DoV, even though developing countries have limitations on producing and accessing the vaccine, they are active in negotiation, lobbying, and involvement in multilateral mechanisms to secure access to the vaccine while promoting equity. DoV explains that vaccine-related diplomacy does not occur in an asymmetrical relationship between producer and consumer countries – but mutual relations with active negotiation. It allows the vaccine-consumer country to use its “soft power” in negotiation to access the vaccine while creating a coalition for equity. However, the vaccine-consumer countries may compete in implementing DoV and are vulnerable to being trapped in the competition of the producers. Furthermore, the DoV may complement vaccine diplomacy by providing a more equal and fair idea of global health diplomacy through the involvement of the vaccine-consumer country’s perspective. It represents the term for Third World countries’ diplomacy related to the vaccine. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Bandung: Journal of the Global South Brill

Abstract

AbstractInequality in global health is not only in vaccine access and distribution among countries but also in the gap in vaccine diplomacy discourse. The concept of vaccine diplomacy emphasizes how the producer countries use vaccines as a tool of diplomacy and soft power instrument. Therefore, the vaccine-consumer countries are less represented in this concept. This study analyzes and proposes the concept of diplomacy on vaccines (DoV), reflecting the perspective of consumer countries. In DoV, even though developing countries have limitations on producing and accessing the vaccine, they are active in negotiation, lobbying, and involvement in multilateral mechanisms to secure access to the vaccine while promoting equity. DoV explains that vaccine-related diplomacy does not occur in an asymmetrical relationship between producer and consumer countries – but mutual relations with active negotiation. It allows the vaccine-consumer country to use its “soft power” in negotiation to access the vaccine while creating a coalition for equity. However, the vaccine-consumer countries may compete in implementing DoV and are vulnerable to being trapped in the competition of the producers. Furthermore, the DoV may complement vaccine diplomacy by providing a more equal and fair idea of global health diplomacy through the involvement of the vaccine-consumer country’s perspective. It represents the term for Third World countries’ diplomacy related to the vaccine.
