in page functions
  • Learn how to apply for new support, how to request renewal, as well as the review and approval process.

  • Gavi’s grant process involves a series of steps, including application submission for new vaccine and/or health system strengthening support, and the subsequent renewal of this support each year.

    Expression of Interest (EOI)
    Application & IRC review
    Application approval & cash/vaccine delivery disbursement
    EOI submitted by the country to support coordination of application development, and to identify technical assistance needs to support grant implementation.
    Applications for new vaccine (NVS) or health system strengthening support (HSS) are submitted by the country. These are reviewed by the Independent Review Committee (IRC).
    Gavi Executive Committee, Board or CEO approves IRC recommendations, and the funds or vaccines are sent to the country.
