The purpose of the HSIS policy, in effect from January 2023, is to set out the principles, general requirements and procedures for Gavi’s HSIS funding to countries.
Strong health systems are vital to deliver vaccines to those who need them. Gavi’s HSIS support is essential in helping countries to build strong, equitable, sustainable and high-quality systems and to strengthen the management of their programs and vaccines. It is also a key lever in helping countries reach zero-dose children and underserved communities.
The policy scope includes Gavi’s Health System Strengthening (HSS) grants, Gavi’s grants to strengthen countries’ cold chain capacity through the Cold Chain Optimisation Platform (CCEOP), and the time-bound vaccine implementation support; Vaccine Introduction Grants (VIGs), Operational Cost grants (Ops) and Switch Grants (SGs).
