  • Funding history

    His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed al Nahyan has been a great champion and supporter of immunisation programmes in a number of countries. Gavi had been one of his first investments for immunisation programmes back in 2011. In addition, His Highness had also pledged USD 120 million at the Global Vaccine Summit held in Abu Dhabi in April 2013, towards the polio campaigns in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    As part of a new partnership marking broader global collaboration around vaccines, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation each committed USD 33 million for immunisation programmes through Gavi in Afghanistan over the period 2011-2015. His Highness made a second pledge of USD 5 million in December 2016 for the period 2017-20.

    Contributions and pledges in total:

    • Direct funding (2011-2015): USD 33 million;
    • Matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: USD 33 million.
