  • Proceeds to Gavi from donor contributions & pledges (2016-2020) as of 30 September 2016



    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.

    Non-US dollar contributions for 2000-2015 are expressed in US dollar equivalents using the exchange rates on the dates of receipt. For 2014 and 2015, where contributions were hedged to mitigate currency risk exposure, have been expressed using the rates applicable to the hedge agreement.

    Non-US dollar Direct Contribution and Matching Fund pledges for years 2016 and beyond are expressed in US dollar equivalents using the forecast rates from Bloomberg as at 30 September 2016 as follows: pledges for which an agreement has been signed (for the year 2016: using the forecast rate for Q4-2016; and for the years 2017 onwards: using an average of the available yearly forecast rates), for agreements yet to be signed (using an average of available yearly forecast rates for 2016 onwards; for 2016 this consists of an average of the forecasted quarterly rates). Pledges for these years for which contributions have already been received are expressed in US dollar equivalents using the exchange rates on the dates of receipt. Non-US dollar pledges that have been hedged to mitigate currency risk exposure are expressed in US dollar equivalents using the exchange rates stated in the hedge agreements.

    Signed non-US dollar IFFIm pledges are expressed in US dollar equivalents using the exchange rates at the time of signing the respective donor grant agreements. Unsigned non-US dollar IFFIm pledges are expressed in US dollar equivalents using an average of the available yearly forecast rates from Bloomberg. 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.

    Additional note regarding FX rates (pertaining to outstanding pledges denominated in non-USD currencies): In light of the unprecedented volatility in FX rates in recent months, Gavi has decided to update its methodology for estimating the USD equivalent value of non-USD denominated contributions: Gavi will update its FX rate assumptions for future years using the average of the annual FX forecasted rates as published by Bloomberg at the end of each calendar quarter (or as otherwise in line with its bi-annual long-term forecasting process). This methodology is consistent with that shared and agreed with donors in Berlin in January 2015 at Gavi’s pledging meeting.

  • 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 94.6 million.
