Gavi has now opened its 2015 round of applications for New Vaccine Support (NVS) and Health System Strengthening (HSS) support.

Materials are available to guide the preparation of submissions for 2015.

Application Materials:

The document entitled, General Guidelines for Expressions of Interest for All Types of Gavi Support in 2015 offers an introduction to the principles, policies and processes that are applicable for Gavi support. Supplementary vaccine-specific guidance is included in the application materials. These guidelines provide important details on the application process, requirements and key considerations specific to each type of Gavi supported vaccine. The guidelines have been updated to include vaccine-specific changes including requirements for campaigns where applicable. The Supplementary HSS Guidelines provide step-by-step guidance on applying for cash based support from Gavi.

Application Submission:

As outlined in the timelines table below, countries are not required to submit an Expression of Interest for the January window in 2015. Please note, country applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, so if a country misses a cut-off date, the application will be reviewed by the subsequent Independent Review Committee (IRC).
