From a review of available information about the organizers, this event is likely to be in favor of Covid-19 vaccination. The narration and sharing of experiences during Covid-19 is important to understand what has happened and the direction in which we may be going. Viewing all aspects of what has happened over the past 3 years, from multiple perspectives and approaches can only be valuable. The organizers include:-
The People's Vaccine Alliance globally and in Asia. This group want free and equal access to Covid-19 vaccines for everyone. Their rally call is “end vaccine apartheid”.
Biomedical Innovations Research for Translational Health Sciences (BIRTHS). I could not find any link to or information about this organization.
UP Physician-Scientists Association. No public listing found, I did sight a private members only FB group.

HEALTH & VACCINE EQUITY SUMMIT
On 16 June 2023, Friday, a Health and Vaccine Equity (HaVE) Summit will be held to rediscover and contextualize the inequities that plagued the COVID-19 response globally, regionally, and especially locally. By looking back, this hybrid summit also aims to provide a path forward to truly attaining genuine health equity, solidarity, and self-sufficiency in the Philippines.
Speakers from various fields of expertise will share their narratives of struggles and advances in ensuring access to diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines, apart from forging a more robust health system that is based on the fulfillment of human rights—in particular, the right to enjoy (1) the highest attainable standard of health as well as (2) the benefits of scientific progress and its applications.
