A National Vaccination Plan with a focus on human rights


Dejusticia, Colombia-based research and advocacy organisation, delivered a series of recommendations to the Ministry of Health and Social Protection to be taken into account when issuing the next decree on vaccination against Covid-19.

Their recommendations include:

  • Adding the principle of non-discrimination to the plan to be proposed;
  • Requesting that the population deprived of liberty be vaccinated sooner than proposed to ensure they are detained in decent conditions;
  • Ensuring the inclusion of persons which might not be identified as they are not found in the General Social Security System for Health
  • Ensuring the Ministry of Health remains the only body to make decisions about the acquisition of the vaccine on the international market; and
  • Regulating the distribution and commercialisation of the vaccine by private actors.
