COVAX Deliveries: vaccine donations as a percentage of the population in recipient countries.

Map of the Month 09/2021

September's map of the month illustrates how many COVAX vaccine donations were delivered to recipient countries by the end of September. The COVAX Facility, co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi, and the World Health Organization (WHO), advocates for rapid, fair, and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world. Since the first international shipment to Ghana on February 24, 2021, the COVAX Facility has already delivered over 313 mln. doses of COVID-19 vaccine to 145 territories. Due to a lack of donations, the COVAX Facility will not reach its original 2021 goal of 2 billion doses until early next year. However, the revised target of 1.2 bln. doses, which will be reached by the end of this year, is sufficient to protect 20% of the population, or 40% of all adults, in all but one recipient country.

COVAX mechanisms: vaccine dose sharing from national stockpile & advance market commitment (AMC)

Map of the Month 08/2021

The COVAX facility, co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi, and the World Health Organization (WHO), consists of several parallel mechanisms to increase rapid, fair, and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines across the world. The Map of the Month of August visualizes the donor countries' contributions to two different structures via which the COVAX initiative obtains and distributes vaccines to the eligible 92 low- and middle-income economies. While COVAX allows for dose sharing from a donor country's existing national supply, the COVAX Advance Market Commitment (AMC) mechanism raised funds from high- and low-income countries and worked with pharmaceutical partners before successful vaccine development and continues to pool financial resources so that doses can be produced and procured at scale as soon as vaccines receive regulatory approval.

Joint Statements on Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Tibet and further votes at 47th UN Human Rights Council

Map of the Month 07/2021

The 47th UN Human Rights Council met in Geneva from June 21 to July 14, 2021, marking its 15th anniversary. Important joint statements were made, among other things, on the human rights situation in Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Tibet or on the role of democracies. There were votes, among other things, on the human rights situation in the Ethiopian region of Tigray or on the question of whether the Council may discuss the situation of a country without its presence.

Host countries and countries of origin of forcibly displaced people 2020

Map of the Month 06/2021

At the end of 2020 82.4 Mio. people were forcibly displaced, which is more than 1% of humanity, double the figure a decade ago and almost 3 Mio. more than in 2019 - besides the border closure in more than 160 countries. With 58,3%, the amount of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) climbed a new record high. The dynamics of protracted conflicts, the effects of climate change as well as COVID-19 are increasingly interconnected and mutually reinforcing in driving displacement.
