Brown…this is just a temporary funding mechanism…we are committed to the 0.7 target…but the timescale to get there is too great…the IFF gets around this, moves funds now.

Gates…delivering vaccines is the way to go because despots and dictators do not want to horde vaccines, so they are more likely to get where they need to go…

Sachs…the IFF is a brilliant way to leverage resources in the short term…but Mkapa is also right, and the G7 have the opportunity to cancel Tanzania’s debt, right now on February 7th…bed nets could save more than a million lives a year, there are brilliant water harvesting techniques…these are all practical things to do, driven through business like mechanisms such as GAVI.

Live discussion: Why is everyone taking the government to court?

There's a pandemic on – so why are openDemocracy, Foxglove and others challenging the British government's health contracts in court? Join us for the inside story on how we're going to extraordinary lengths to force the government to reveal what they're doing with public money and citizens' health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.

Hear from:

Cori Crider Lawyer Investigator and co-founder of Foxglove, a non-profit that seeks to make the use of technology fair for everyone

Caroline Molloy Editor ourNHS and openDemocracyUK

Chair: Mary Fitzgerald Editor-in-chief, openDemocracy
