On 11 March 2022, the World commemorated the second year fighting against Covid 19 pandemic, it is a day, which was observed differently in different corners of the world mainly among health institutions and various non-governmental organisations.
It is in this line that TUMUKUNDE Initiative as a non-governmental organisation and member of GCAP Rwanda joined other sister organisations to commemorate the day in Rwanda.
The call and motive to commemorate the day was to raise awareness particularly on the western countries mainly countries manufacturing covid 19 vaccines to end monopolies by alleviating Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS).
In this regard, TUMUKUNDE Initiative conducted a related campaign from the 4th March up to 11 March and it was marked by different activities including:
•Mobilisation through social media;
•Writing and delivering letters to different embassies based in Rwanda, representing western countries;
•Organising a press conference with the aim of spreading our message through Radio and TVs
