The Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Commerce collaborated with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Caribbean Chambers of Commerce (Caricham) and the Caricom Private Sector Organisation (CPSO), to host the Regional Action Network outreach initiative on April 28 titled, Call to Action: The ICC Campaign to end the pandemic in the Caribbean.
The free virtual event brought together relevant stakeholders for discussions on how the private sector can contribute towards ending the spread of covid19 and safely reopening the economy. By pushing for the equitable distribution of vaccines, addressing vaccine hesitancy and increasing investment in the public health system we stand a better chance of overcoming the crisis. Dr. Scott Ratzan participated on the panel on vaccine hesitancy.
Ratzan, co-founder of the Convince Campaign, highlighted that it ranged from 62 per cent to 32 per cent among the adult populations of several Caribbean countries. The Convince Campaign aims to mobilise the business community to engage employers and employees to accept covid19 vaccines and assist in stopping the spread of the virus.
