Gavi and Orange Middle East and Africa recognise the importance of mobile health solutions to improve the efficiency of national health systems, especially in reaching the millions of children who continue to miss out on life-saving vaccines that protect them for life.
Gavi and Orange SA signed a letter of intent in 2017 to explore ways to collaborate to assist Gavi-supported countries to reinforce the interface between local communities and health facilities, leading to improvement in the quality of health services and as a consequence, to increase immunisation coverage, reduce vaccine wastage, increase efficiency and better ensure vaccine potency.

Contributions and pledges in total:
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. IFFIm proceeds are allocated over five-year periods coinciding with Gavi’s strategic periods. Proceeds for the current and future strategic periods are indicative until the end of each period and could be revised following changes in market conditions (interest rates or foreign exchange rates), the signing of new pledge(s) and/or changes in IFFIm’s disbursement profile.

Due to IFFIm’s nature as a frontloading vehicle, yearly contributions paid into IFFIm can differ significantly from yearly proceeds transferred to Gavi. While IFFIm grants are irrevocable and legally binding, they are subject to a Grant Payment Condition that can potentially reduce the amount due in the event that a programme country is in protracted arrears with the International Monetary Fund. As of 31 December 2019, IFFIm donor grant payments are reduced by 1.5%, however such reductions are not reflected in future contributions figures.
