Applications for both New Vaccine Support (NVS) and Health System Strengthening (HSS) will now be accepted through the same application and review timelines. The General Guidelines document offers an introduction to the principles, policies and processes that are applicable to all types of GAVI support.
Visit the updated section of the French website for all materials in French.
Countries are requested to submit an ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) as the first step in the application process. Submission of the EOI will be made mandatory starting with the September cut-off date for applications.
Country applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, so if a country misses a cut-off date, the application will be reviewed by the subsequent Independent Review Committee (IRC).
