Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, has a long history with Switzerland as our host country since inception in 2000. Switzerland has recently deepened this commitment with a direct contribution to Gavi. Switzerland became a Gavi donor on 8 December 2016 with the signing of an Agreement for a contribution of 2 million CHF in support to the 2016-2020 strategic period.
Health is a focus area of work across all Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) departments (East, global and regional cooperation and humanitarian aid), and its multilateral partnerships. Gavi’s mission to protect people’s health by increasing equitable use of vaccines in low-income countries is strongly aligned with the SDC’s strategic objective for fair access to resources and services, including health systems for all. Access to healthcare is a priority issue for the SDC in the Great Lakes region (Rwanda, Burundi, DRC); health system strengthening in the DRC is an important part of addressing this issue.
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.

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 2019, IFFIm donor grant payments are reduced by 1.5%, however such reductions are not reflected in future contributions figures.
Switzerland is committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and was actively involved in the process to realise the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Switzerland’s support to Gavi emphasises their commitment to the achievement of the SDGs, and in particular the necessity of immunisation to achieve SDG3.
