ACT-A seeks to ensure that vaccines are distributed equitably.

"Governments may need to subsidize the development of vaccines as an incentive to ensure fast and adequate production," Ramaphosa said.

"As a global community, we must encourage people to participate in safe clinical trials of different vaccines."
