The Initiative proposes a united response to the challenge of expanding health and health cooperation in the context of the epidemic, ensuring that all peoples, especially those in developing countries, have access to safe, effective, accessible and affordable diagnostic tools, medicines, vaccines and critical medical supplies, ensuring the equitable distribution of vaccines, accelerating vaccination and bridging the global “immunisation divide”. Cooperation between BRICS countries in the areas of detection methods, treatment, research and development, vaccine production and mutual recognition, research on vaccine safety and effectiveness for new variants of the Covid-19 virus, mutual recognition of the Covid-19 vaccination and testing certificates (especially for international travel), knowledge-sharing on traditional medicine continues to be strengthened. The Initiative calls for an open-minded approach to the recovery of the world economy by supporting an open, transparent, equitable, inclusive, non-discriminatory, rules-based multilateral trading system, granting special and differential treatment to developing countries, ensuring a level playing field and avoiding actions that run counter to WTO rules, such as unilateralism and protectionism.
