Many experts say that equitable access to vaccines is essential to ending the pandemic.

Rich countries, including the United Kingdom, are blocking proposals to help developing nations to increase their vaccine manufacturing capacities, according to documents leaked to the BBC Newsnight program.

Several poor countries have turned to the World Health Organization (WHO) for help to increase their capacity to produce vaccines.

But the richest nations are rejecting the provisions of international law that would allow them to do so.

This according to a leaked copy of the negotiating text of a WHO resolution on the matter.
