How British Vaccine Cartel GAVI Dictates India's Coronavirus Response
British led GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) has managed to infiltrate India’s healthcare policy-making thereby gaining a strategic position to dictate India’s response to coronavirus. GAVI is largely led by the British government and Bill Gates. While the UK is GAVI’s largest funder, its implementation follows what is known as the” Gates approach”. Known as the Vaccine Cartel or Pharma Cartel by critics, its vaccines have been accused of causing atleast 38 million premature deaths worldwide.
Dr. Harsh Vardhan joins GAVI
Recently, Dr. Harsh Vardhan, India’s Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare was nominated by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI) as a member on the GAVI Board.
Dr. Harsh Vardhan will be representing the South East Area Regional Office (SEARO)/ Western Pacific Regional Office (WPRO) constituency on the GAVI Board. The seat is currently held by Mr. MyintHtwe of Myanmar. Dr. Harsh Vardhan will be representing India from 1stJanuary 2021 until 31st December 2023.
The GAVI Board is responsible for strategic direction and policy-making, oversees the operations of the Vaccine Alliance and monitors programme implementation. With membership drawn from a range of partner organisations, as well as experts from the private sector, the Board provides a forum for strategic decision making, innovation and partner collaboration.
WHO’s Polio Initiative in India
Dr Harsh Vardhan introduced several of the key polio elimination initiatives as health minister of Delhi in 1994. Many of his initiatives were scaled up across the country and also adopted by other countries. Dr Harsh Vardhan was awarded Director-General’s Polio Eradication Champion Award Commendation Medal by the World Health Organization in 1998.
However, the WHO’s Polio eradication program may not have gone so smoothly as is being projected, as GreatGameIndia reported in our earlier piece Bill Gates Agenda in India.
With $450 million of funding to eradicate Polio, Bill Gates took control of India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) which mandated up to 50 doses (Table 1) of polio vaccines through overlapping immunization programs to children before the age of five. Indian doctors blame the Gates campaign for a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) epidemic that paralyzed 490,000 children beyond expected rates between 2000 and 2017.
In 2017, the Indian government dialed back Gates’ vaccine regimen and asked Gates and his vaccine policies to leave India. NPAFP rates dropped precipitously. In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) reluctantly admitted that the global explosion in polio is predominantly vaccine strain. The most frightening epidemics in Congo, Afghanistan, and the Philippines, are all linked to vaccines. In fact, by 2018, 70% of global polio cases were vaccine strain.
WHO’s COVID-19 Surveillance Project in India
Now, Dr Harsh Vardhan oversees the WHO’s COVID-19 Surveillance Project in India in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
The data gathered through full-scale surveillance will be used to make future Indian strategies for containment in India. Coincidentally, WHO’s National Public Health Surveillance Project is launched on the very same day American President Donald Trump announced an end to the funding of WHO, with regards to the never-ending list of blunders being committed by WHO repeatedly.
Dr Harsh Vardhan also oversees the India’s mandatory digital health card modeled on Bill Gates’ concept. Under the ‘One Nation One Health Card’ scheme, a person’s medical history records, including all the treatments and tests that the person has undergone, will be digitally saved in this card.
Global Vaccine Summit 2020
On 4th June 2020, the British government organised the Global Vaccine Summit 2020, to raise US$7.4 billion (approximately £6 billion) in funding for their global vaccine project.
The Global Vaccine Summit 2020 was organised to position Britain at the center stage for the Global Coronavirus Response Initiative with a funding of 7.4 billion euros (approximately £6.64 billion) toward vaccines, tests and treatment to tackle coronavirus.
During the summit, the Indian Prime Minister pledged US $15 million to the global vaccine alliance GAVI over the next 5 years for the global Coronavirus vaccine project led by Britain.
According to GAVI, India is the only country that has moved from being a recipient to a donor. The country is also now its largest manufacturer, accounting for more than 60% of GAVI vaccines.
The UK has funded GAVI since its inception in 2000 and is its largest donor, with a pledge of £1.65 billion for the next five years. However, GAVI has been criticized for giving private donors more unilateral power to decide on global health goals, prioritizing new, expensive vaccines while putting less money and effort into expanding coverage of old, cheap ones, harming local healthcare systems, spending too much on subsidies to large, profitable pharmaceutical companies without reducing the prices of some vaccines, and its conflicts of interest in having vaccine manufacturers on its governance board.
Bill Gates Agenda in India
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has spent heavily on GAVI, contributing $750 million just to its launch and a whopping $1.56 billion since 2016. But little is known of how its money and its consultant friends exert tremendous influence in the space of public health and international governance and how Bill Gates infiltrated Global Health.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the nephew of former American President John F. Kennedy, in a lengthy piece exposed Bill Gates agenda in India and his “obsession with vaccines”.
“In addition to using his philanthropy to control WHO, UNICEF, GAVI, and PATH, Gates funds a private pharmaceutical company that manufactures vaccines, and additionally is donating $50 million to 12 pharmaceutical companies to speed up development of a coronavirus vaccine.
In his (Bill Gates) recent media appearances, Gates appears confident that the Covid-19 crisis will now give him the opportunity to force his dictatorial vaccine programs on American (and Indian) children.”
However, these GAVI prescribed vaccines have been at the center of numerous controversies for its serious ill-effects and even causing deaths. Multiple vaccine-related mishaps have been recorded in India, one of the countries eligible for Gavi allocations.
GAVI accused of 38 million premature deaths worldwide
In 2013, when the pentavalent drug was introduced in a pilot project, 13 deaths were reported from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Haryana, all pointing towards pentavalent as the cause. Maharashtra’s state health department stopped the use of a batch of pentavalent vaccine after Central Drug Laboratory found it to be of substandard quality.
In Vietnam, since the vaccine was first used in 2007, at least 63 children have died after vaccination. Vietnam’s health ministry suspended the vaccine in May 2013 after the death of nine children.
In 2011, India’s Union health ministry conducted an investigation into 54 infant deaths in Tamil Nadu, concluding that ‘adverse events following immunisation were observed after administering pentavalent.
However, this figure of vaccine related deaths is much higher and according to Madhav Nalpat, the Director of the Department of Geopolitics & International Relations at Manipal University, critical drugs produced by Big Pharma have resulted in as many as 38 million premature deaths.
The BMGF funds international NGOs such as GAVI and PATH, which follow its policy of favouring the brands produced by US-EU companies such as Ely Lilly, Pfizer, GSK, Merck, Novartis and other such companies known for the high price of several of the medicines marketed by them.
Although exact figures are difficult to come by, a health expert claimed that the “intolerably high prices of critical drugs produced by Big Pharma have resulted in as many as 38 million premature deaths in underdeveloped countries during the past decade”, and that this figure would have been “much more in case civil society groups in Europe had not agitated successfully for entry to cheaper substitutes from India for several extortionately priced drugs for killer diseases produced by pharma conglomerates in the developed world”.
GAVI associated with British Eugenics Movement
GAVI is also associated with the British Eugenics Movement as well as other Eugenics-linked institutions like the Wellcome Trust and other manufacturers of the COVID-19 vaccine like AstraZeneca and Oxford University.
Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, is enmeshed with the Gates Foundation. His employer, the University of Oxford, has received $11 million for vaccine development research from the foundation over the past three years and $208 million in grants over the past decade.
In 2016, the Gates Foundation gave $36 million to a team of researchers that was headed by Pollard for vaccine development. In addition, Pollard’s private laboratory is funded by the Gates Foundation.
Given this, it should come as no surprise that the Global Alliance for Vaccine Initiative (GAVI), a public-private partnership founded and currently funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, plans to distribute the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to low-income, predominantly African and Asian, countries once it’s approved.
The developers of the COVID-19 vaccine share a close relationship with the most infamous eugenics society in Europe, the British Eugenics Society. The Eugenics Society was renamed the Galton Institute in 1989, a name that pays homage to Sir Francis Galton, the so-called father of eugenics, a field that he often described as the “science of improving racial stock.”
This new “wider definition of eugenics,” Galton has said, “would cover methods of regulating population numbers as well as improving genome quality by selective artificial insemination by donor, gene therapy or gene manipulation of germ-line cells.” In expanding on this new definition, Galton is neutral as to “whether some methods should be made compulsory by the state, or left entirely to the personal choice of the individual.”
