Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has signed a five-year agreement with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and donated US $10 million to support Gavi's efforts to enhance equitable and sustainable access to vaccines in lower-income countries.

Through the signed agreement, QFFD will support Gavi to enhance access to vaccines in lower-income countries and will work with the Vaccine Alliance to ensure that zero-dose children those who are yet to receive a single dose of a basic routine vaccine - get access to immunization services.

"QFFD established a strong strategic partnership with Gavi to financially support worlds poorest countries against vaccine-preventable diseases where Qatar has committed to provide an initial US $10 million to support immunization programs in the period between 2021 to 2025." Deputy Director General of projects of Qatar Fund for Development Misfer Al Shahwani said.

"We welcome this contribution and partnership from the QFFD, which will enable further access to vaccines over the next five years. Building on our 20-year, country-led successes and guided by the principle of equity, Gavi remains committed to protecting the next generation and reaching children that completely miss out on routine immunization," Marie-Ange Saraka-Yao said, who is the Managing Director of Resource Mobilization, Private sector partnerships and Innovative Financing at Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

QFFDs donation and partnership will support Gavi in its mission to save children's lives and protect people's health by increasing access to immunization and contributes to Sustainable Development Goal 3: "ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages."
