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.

Contributions and pledges in total:

  • Direct funding (2008-2010): EUR 31 million (USD 43.2 million)
  • IFFIm (2006-2025): EUR 185.9 million (USD 212.1 million)
  • IFFIm COVAX AMC (2021): EUR 50 (USD 56.1 million)


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.

IFFIm contributions

Future contributions:  non-US$ contributions for Q4-2020 and for years 2021 and beyond are expressed in US$ equivalents as follows:

Where the contribution agreement has been signed:  contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents using the exchange rates at the time of signing the respective donor grant agreements
Where the contribution agreement has not yet been signed:  contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents using the applicable spot rates from Bloomberg as at 30 September 2020

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 30 September 2020, IFFIm donor grant payments are reduced by 0.5%, however such reductions are not reflected in future contributions figures.
