Summary The article refers to Japan’s role in pushing vaccine diplomacy through the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QUAD), amidst an aggressive strategy by countries such as China and Russia which have invested in providing vaccines to developing countries, taking the place of traditional aiders, like the US or Japan, which have failed to provide vaccines to poorer countries as a policy.
