Health ministers from the G-7 group of wealthy nations met Thursday in Britain to discuss sharing vaccines with poorer countries, as calls continue to ensure fairer global distribution of doses.

The meeting in Oxford in southern England comes ahead of next week's G-7 summit, hosted by Britain, which is set to be dominated by discussion of the coronavirus pandemic and recovery plans.

"We'll be working together with G-7 partners to try to meet the objective that a vaccine is made available right across the world," Britian Health Secretary Matt Hancock told reporters.

The ministers from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States vowed to "combat future health threats by working together to identify early warning signs from animals and the environment". (AFP)
