The UK is a longstanding supporter and funder of international development and in March 2015 passed parliamentary legislation committing the government to spend 0.7% of GNI on international development. The current government’s manifesto reconfirms the commitment to international development as well as to ending preventable deaths of mothers, newborns and children by 2030. The UK ensures value for money for taxpayers of all its investments and therefore DFID conducts occasional Multilateral Development Reviews (MDR), which assesses the major multilateral agencies that the UK funds. The 2016 MDR concluded that GAVI was one of the top performers. In addition, DFID conducts annual reviews of the UK investments in Gavi, AMC and IFFIm.
The UK is one of Gavi’s six original donors and one of two donor countries that support Gavi through all three funding channels (direct grants, IFFIm and AMC).
Direct contributions and Matching Fund:
IFFIm, AMC and IPV:
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.

Where the contribution agreement has not yet been signed: contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents using the applicable 'forecast rates' from Bloomberg as at 31 December 2019
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.
