Here, what's the difference between 'sommige' (some) and 'wat' (some)?

The first "some" refers to the "number" of countries. The second "some" is part of "wat meer", referring to an "amount" of equality. "Meer gelijkheid " = more equality. "Wat meer gelijkheid" = a bit more equality, or some more equality. Hope this helps.

If I translate this sentence to say: some countries need to have more equality. I think it means the same

No, RoseRichar4 is right. The Dutch sentence says 'hebben nodig' which translates to 'need to have.' Your sentence with 'moeten hebben' translates to 'should have.'
