Currently, in 30 of the 53 PEPFAR countries, less than a third of the population has received at least one vaccine dose and only 10 are on track to meet global COVID-19 vaccine targets. The toll the COVID-19 pandemic has exacted on the global economy has been significant, with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimating that median global GDP dropped by 3.9% from 2019 to 2020, making it the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. While the global economy was estimated to have recovered in 2021, recovery has been uneven and disparities in vaccine access and coverage could threaten improvement in much of the world” said Dr. Kannan Vishwanatth.

The Latvian Academy of Sciences is a successor of several scientiﬁc associations which previously existed in Latvia. Its predecessors are the Kurzeme Society for Literature and Art, founded in 1815 in Jelgava and the Commission of Science, founded within the Rīga Latvian Society in 1869, which in 1932 was reorganised into the Science Committee with the status of a private academy of sciences. Since 1919, the government of the Republic of Latvia had repeatedly considered the foundation of an ofﬁcial Latvian Academy of Sciences. In 1927, the idea was supported by Rainis, who was then Minister of Education. In 1935, the intention to create the Latvian Academy of Sciences was expressed in public by the Prime Minister Kārlis Ulmanis, and on 14 January 1936, by the Cabinet's Act, the Institute of History of Latvia was founded as the ﬁrst constituent part of this Academy.In Latvia, the Academy of Sciences started its work on 14 February 1946, when academy members gathered for their ﬁrst General Meeting. Scientists from the University of Latvia and the Latvian Academy of Agriculture formed the core of the Academy of Sciences. The Latvian Academy of Sciences (LAS) is a derived legal entity under public law in the public administration system with autonomous competence which consists of elected Members of the LAS.
