Gavi has now opened its 2014 round of applications for new vaccines and health system strengthening support

Materials are available to guide all applications submitted for 2014 cut-off dates

New in 2014

Applications for both New Vaccine Support (NVS) and Health System Strengthening (HSS) will now be accepted through the same application and review timelines. The General Guidelines document offers an introduction to the principles, policies and processes that are applicable to all types of Gavi support.

Countries are requested to submit an ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) as the first step in the application process. Submission of the EOI will be made mandatory starting with the September cut-off date for applications.

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).
