English Abstract

International health security is at stake due to severe discrimination and disparities in global health care--the accessibility and equity of vaccines. To provide a solution, South Korea must engage in international health diplomacy with the U.S., provide technical support, secure raw materials, expand vaccine production, and form and invest in a value chain for international health and security.
