  • Proceeds to Gavi from donor contributions & pledges (2016-2020) as of 31 March 2017

     

     

    Note: Proceeds are funds made available to Gavi from donor contributions and commitments, either through cash payments made to Gavi, through frontloading via the capital markets of a future donor commitment to IFFIm, or through AMC funds released to Gavi via the World Bank. Future IFFIm proceeds from new pledges made at the Berlin pledging conference are indicative and are based on certain assumptions including future interest rates and foreign exchange rates generated from financial market data, and donor payment schedules. These assumptions may differ from conditions prevailing at the time of grant and legal agreement signing, which may result in different projected and realised IFFIm proceeds.

    Direct Contributions (including Matching Fund)
    Received contributions: non-US$ contributions for 2000-2016 are expressed in US$ equivalents using the exchange rates on the dates of receipt. For 2014, 2015 and 2016, where contributions were hedged to mitigate currency risk exposure, these have been expressed using the rates applicable to the hedge agreement.

    Future contributions: non-US$ Direct Contribution and Matching Fund pledges for years 2017 and beyond are expressed in US$ equivalents using the applicable 'forecast rates' from Bloomberg as at 31 March 2017 or using the rates applicable to any hedge agreement in place.

    IFFIm contributions
    Received contributions: non-US$ contributions for 2000-2016 are expressed in US$ equivalents as confirmed by the IBRD (World Bank)

    Future contributions: non-US$ contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents as follows:

    • Where the contribution agreement has been signed: contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents using the exchange rates at the time of signing the respective donor grant agreements
    • Where the contribution agreement has not yet been signed: non-US$ pledges for years 2017 and beyond are expressed in US$ equivalents using the applicable 'forecast rates' from Bloomberg as at 31 March 2017
    • These contributions have not been reduced by a notional 3% provision to allow for any potential reduction arising from the High Level Financing Condition of the IFFIm Finance Framework Agreement.

     

  • Funding history

    Japan plays a prominent role in advancing global health agenda, especially since the G8 Summit in 2000 where infectious diseases control was extensively discussed and a decision to create the Global Fund was made. Japan has also been spearheading a number of innovative health initiatives such as a loan conversion mechanism for its long standing polio eradication support.

    Japan made its first commitment to Gavi at the 2011 June pledging conference, committing USD 9.3 million in direct contributions for 2011. Japan also made contributions in 2012 (USD 9.1 million), 2013 (USD 9.1 million) and 2014 (USD 8.7 million) respectively. Japan contributed USD 17.6 million to Gavi for 2015 in support of health system recovery in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The amount was doubled from the annual average in previous years. In May 2016, in fringe of the G7 leaders’ Summit 2016 under its presidency, Japan for the first time announced a multi-year pledge to Gavi (USD 19 million per year from 2017- 2020). With this Japan’s financial support to Gavi’s 2016-2020 strategic period amounts to USD 94.6 million.

    Contributions and pledges in total:

    • Direct funding (2011-2015): USD 53.7 million;
    • Direct funding (2016-2020): USD 94.7 million.
