Fr. Arturo Sosa, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, affirms: “COVID-19 is showing us that we are one humanity and how overcoming a crisis is possible when we become aware of the importance of looking after the common good and taking seriously our own individual responsibility. We can only live as one body.”

As COVID-19 vaccination campaigns accelerate in the world’s wealthiest countries, the Society of Jesus joins the calls for concrete efforts to ensure an equitable and just vaccine allocation framework. Currently,87% of administered vaccines have gone to high-income or upper-middle-income countries while low-income countries have received only 0.2% of available vaccines.

We, as organisations of the Society of Jesus, committed to upholding the dignity of all people, especially marginalized and vulnerable communities all over the world, add our voice to the many individuals and groups in the Church and civil society which are advocating for equity and justice in the production and distribution of vaccines.
