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

by Dr. Olaf Wientzek, Rosa Ann Seidler

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.
