Anuradha Mascarenhas, January 31, 2022. The article “Explained – Why Moderna’s Experimental HIV Vaccine May Be Crucial” examines how Covid-19 contributed to HIV therapy. This article examines how HIV continues to decimate India, which is one of the most populous countries in the world. Mascarenhas (2022), notes that India has suffered a severe economic decline due to HIV. The author states that Moderna’s progress in creating an HIV vaccine has made it possible for nations that have suffered from HIV/AIDS and their economies to benefit. Although the latest HIV advances may be good news for some countries, Covid-19 is not as urgently needed.
Although the article may be technically focused, there are many discussions about global management. Moderna was able to produce the Covid-19 vaccination in record time. This is important for understanding. Moderna was founded in 2010. The firm Moderna was founded in 2010. The newly discovered Covid-19 virus was vaccinated before HIV. The argument in this case is that HIV wasn’t a top priority for the company. HIV is more prevalent in developing and emerging economies than it is in developed countries. Covid-19 is a case in point. Covid-19 levels found in countries with established economies were significantly higher than the ones from emerging or developing nations. The wealthy are more likely to take part in any global health crisis. Coviod-19 saw many resources allocated to education institutions and biotechnology companies in the effort to create a vaccine. HIV, however, hasn’t been addressed with the same urgency.
It was right for the author to praise the progress. It is important to think about how emerging economies might address their health problems in this case. There is a lot of global involvement when a problem in health affects nations outside the developed world (Sernau 2021). India must also explore local solutions to the HIV issue. The argument that Moderna had an HIV vaccine wouldn’t have been made if Covid-19 hadn’t existed is one possible. HIV has been deemed a serious illness in certain countries. As such, it is not something that the developed world should pay too much attention.
