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

    Notes:
    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 31 March 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

    The United States is one of the Vaccine Alliance’s original six donor countries and contributes to Gavi through direct contributions. The United States has placed a significant emphasis on ending preventable child deaths through reducing child mortality and targeting funding for high-impact, low-cost interventions. Vaccines and immunizations are an important component of this initiative and Gavi is a key partner in helping the United States achieve its goals. Moreover, the United States continues to be an important partner to Gavi by aligning programmatic interests in country to ensure greater efficiency and impact on the ground.

    Annual contributions have increased from USD 48 million in 2001 to USD 200 million in 2015. At Gavi’s first pledging conference in June 2011, the United States pledged USD 450 million for the period 2012-2014, subject to congressional approval. In addition to this pledge announcement, the US contributed USD 90 million for 2011. At the Gavi pledging conference in January 2015, the United States pledged USD 1 billion for the period 2015-2018, subject to congressional approval, which includes the 2016 contribution of USD 235 million. The 2016 funding level represents the largest annual contribution to the Vaccine Alliance from the United States to date. The Administration has requested USD 275 million for 2017 to Gavi, which requires Congressional approval.

    Contributions and pledges in total:

    • Direct funding (2001-2014): USD 1.2 billion;
    • New pledge (2015-2018): USD 1 billion.
