From 2014 onwards, applications for both new vaccines support (NVS) and health systems strengthening (HSS) will be accepted through the same application and review timelines.
Following the GAVI Alliance Board decision in November 2013, countries are now also invited to apply for inactivated polio vaccine (IPV).
Visit the updated section of the French website for all materials in French.
For IPV applications, please refer to the table below for specific 2014 application timelines and the corresponding guidelines and forms to be used. To guide all applications submitted for the 1 May and 15 September 2014 cut-off dates, new materials will be launched in January. These will include updated guidance for IPV.
From 2014, 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.
