As part of the PLoS Medicine series on Global Health Diplomacy, David Fidler provides a case study of the difficult negotiations to increase equitable access to vaccines for highly pathogenic avian influenza A (H5N1) and pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1). 
Ensuring global access to COVID-19 vaccines
TLDR
The development of COVID-19 vaccines that can be used globally is therefore a priority for ending the pandemic because “transmission will quickly rebound if interventions are relaxed”. Expand
WHO’s Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Framework: A Milestone in Global Governance for Health
TLDR
The PIP Framework is a landmark for global governance for health because it is the first international agreement facilitating influenza virus and benefit sharing, but it is not legally binding, avoids intellectual property issues that complicated the negotiations, does not include commitments from developed countries to donate portions of influenza vaccines they purchase, and faces implementation challenges in an increasingly difficult global health environment. Expand
Virus sharing, genetic sequencing, and global health security
TLDR
The changes that need to be made to address the growing likelihood that genetic sequence data might be shared instead of physical virus samples, as well as the need to expand the PIP framework’s scope and to improve its fairness are examined. Expand
Multivalue ethical framework for fair global allocation of a COVID-19 vaccine
TLDR
This piece analyses four allocation paradigms: ability to develop or purchase; reciprocity; ability to implement; and distributive justice, and synthesises their ethical considerations to develop an allocation model to fit the COVID-19 pandemic. Expand
Norm Conflicts in Global Health: The Case of Indonesia and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness
The current Covid-19 pandemic highlights the importance of international cooperation in the prevention and containment of infectious diseases. This is true for all pathogens with pandemic potential,Expand
Global Public Health Legal Responses to H1N1
TLDR
The H1N1 pandemic prompted the first significant application of a number of international legal and policy mechanisms that have been developed in the last decade to respond to this kind of event. Expand
The Politics of Medicine and the Global Governance of Pandemic Influenza
  • A. Kamradt-Scott
  • Medicine
  • International journal of health services : planning, administration, evaluation
  • 2013
TLDR
The article concludes by discussing how the intense focus on pharmaceutical-based solutions reflects a particular view of biomedicine that has had serious political implications in distorting global health governance arrangements and argues that only by unpacking these structures and revealing the political authority in play can alternative policy responses more appropriate to a wider proportion of humanity be considered.

Developing Nations and Disadvantaged Populations: How the 2009 H1N1 Influenza Pandemic Exacerbated Disparities and Inequities
The 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, although not as deadly or long lasting as initially projected, demonstrated that the world was and is ill prepared to handle a mass pandemic. As the first pandemicExpand
The Equitable Distribution of COVID-19 Therapeutics and Vaccines.
TLDR
Here is a proposal for global cooperation to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines and therapies for COViD-19, with a common global interest. Expand
Vaccinate before the next pandemic?
TLDR
Pre-pandemic immunization with a cocktail of likely strains could be a cheap, practical and equitable way to protect people against influenza, says Novartis' Klaus Stohr. Expand

An incident that involved withholding avian influenza virus samples illustrates the importance and limitations of international law in global health diplomacy.
Poverty, wealth, and access to pandemic influenza vaccines.
TLDR
The prospects for developing an effective vaccine to prevent infection with the current H1N1 virus are excellent and a set of principles to guide global allocation of a pandemic vaccine is proposed. Expand
