Foundational support

[French]

Foundational support is used to finance global and regional coordination of Alliance activities.

Foundational support is long-term funding, mainly used to pay for staff working at the global and regional levels. It is available for WHO, UNICEF, the World Bank, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Civil Society Organisation (CSO) Constituency.  

This type of support makes it possible for partners to play a lead role in critical areas where they have a comparative advantage.

How it works

Examples of activities funded through foundational support are:

  • WHO’s setting of norms, standards and policies for vaccine introductions.
  • UNICEF’s leadership role in supply chain management and social mobilisation efforts.
