The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) will lead the procurement and delivery of coronavirus vaccines to ensure that all countries have access to the vaccine when the initial dose is available, the agency said Friday. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said it would lead the procurement and delivery of coronavirus vaccines and ensure that every country has the vaccine against the disease as soon as it becomes available. The UN Children’s Fund (UNCEF) has said it is leading the procurement of vaccines against the CorneaVirus to ensure that every country has the protection against it when first doses are available and to protect children in the long term.
In collaboration with PAHO and the Revolving Fund, UNICEF will be responsible for procuring and delivering the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to low, low, and middle-income countries. The Rev Fund will lead the process of purchasing and delivering doses of the COVID 19 vaccine on behalf of a COVAX Global Vaccines Facility, a facility that supports vaccine purchases for low and low-to-middle income individuals.

As for the possible COVID-19 vaccine, UNICEF says it will lead what may be the largest vaccine ever procured globally for low and low-income people in Africa and South Asia through the Gavi vaccine alliance, led by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in partnership with the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Brazil, and other countries in the Middle East and North Africa. UNICEF will also join the leading GAVI Vaccines Alliance to support the development and delivery of COVID-18 vaccines in low-, low- and middle-income, low- and middle-income countries. The WHO Global Vaccine Initiative (GII), which could be an important step towards a global supply chain for this vaccine and its use in children’s health.
Unicef says that in what may be the world’s largest and fastest operation, UNICEF will lead the procurement and delivery of the coronavirus vaccine to ensure that countries have a safe, timely, and equitable initial dose when it becomes available. As several vaccine candidates in the Gavi Vaccines Alliance have shown promise for the development and delivery of COVID-18 vaccines in low, low- and middle-income, low- and middle-income, high-poverty countries in Africa and South Asia, as well as in the Middle East and North Africa, in partnership with the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Brazil, and other countries, UNICEF is also leading efforts to purchase and deliver Covid-19 vaccines in addition to the vaccine purchased. It will also play a leading role in ensuring that each country has safe and timely initial doses, as soon as they become available, and in managing the procurement, supply, and vaccination of all vaccines under GAVI’s GII program.
UNICEF is the world’s largest single purchaser of vaccines, sourcing more than 2 billion doses of routine vaccines annually in low, middle, and high-income poor countries and high-poverty countries in Africa and South Asia, and in partnership with the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Brazil, and others. It is also the world’s largest single purchaser of vaccines, having purchased the majority of the vaccines under the Gavi Vaccines Alliance’s GII program and the WHO’s Global Immunisation Initiative. UNICEF is procuring most vaccines for children under five in sub-Saharan Africa.

UNICEF is the world’s largest single purchaser of vaccines, sourcing more than two billion doses of vaccines for children under five in the poor, low-, middle- and high-income countries in Africa and South Asia, and in partnership with the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Brazil, and others. In addition to the Gavi Vaccines Alliance’s GII program and WHO’s Global Immunisation Initiative, UNICEF is also the largest single vaccine buyer, having procured most vaccine candidates under the GAVI vaccine alliance programs in Sub-Saharan Africa. UNICEF has also been the largest single purchaser of vaccines in Asia and Africa for the past five years and is now the smallest single provider of vaccines in Europe and North America, as it sources the most doses per child per year in both low- and middle-income countries and in high-poverty countries such as South America and Latin America.
