Six African countries, including Egypt and Tunisia, were chosen to produce their own vaccines using messenger RNA technology, as the first beneficiary of a global program for the production of vaccines led by the World Health Organization.

The organization said that it chose these countries, namely Egypt, Tunisia, South Africa, Kenya, Senegal and Nigeria, to allow the African continent, which receives vaccines in a very limited way, to produce its own vaccines to combat the pandemic and other diseases.
