Spain joined IFFIm in 2006, as one of the original donors, with a commitment of EUR 189.5 million over 20 years. Underpinning this commitment to innovative financing, the Spanish government made a first direct contribution of EUR 30 million to Gavi in 2008 followed by a EUR 2 million contribution for 2010. ”la Caixa” support complements the commitment from the government of Spain towards Gavi in an innovative way (see section entitled la Caixa.) At Gavi’s second replenishment conference in Berlin, the Spanish Ambassador reiterated his country’s support to Gavi’s mission for the 2016-2020 period. He also indicated that Spain is looking at increasing its contributions from the private sector.
At the Global Vaccine Summit in June 2020, Spain renewed its commitment to Gavi by pledging EUR 50 million to IFFIm. During the Paris Peace Forum in November 2020, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced that this new contribution would be allocated to the Gavi COVAX AMC to accelerate equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines for all countries.
At the “One World Protected” event hosted by Japan on June 2nd 2021, Spain pledged an additional EUR 50 million through IFFIm pledge to support the Gavi COVAX AMC. Spain also pledged to donate 22.5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines through COVAX. In addition, the autonomous communities of Basque Country, Catalonia and Extremadura of the Kingdom of Spain have collectively pledged almost EUR 1 million to the Gavi COVAX AMC.
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 by the donor in the event that a Gavi-supported programme country is in protracted arrears with the International Monetary Fund. As of 29 June 2021, there is no longer any reduction applied, as all countries from the reference portfolio have cleared their arrears with the IMF.
