Activists with the Project on Organizing, Development, Education, and Research (PODER), based in Mexico, have helped launch an international campaign to hold them accountable. This includes calling on big pharmaceutical companies to share their vaccine manufacturing research and technology with others so that more doses can be produced worldwide.
