20 countries are graduating from GAVI support
Each year, some countries will start graduating from GAVI support, as their GNI per capita increases beyond the eligibility threshold.
Currently there are 20 graduating countries that are graduating and implementing a set duration of GAVI support that was approved in previous years.
Access to pneumococcal vaccines
Graduating countries that have passed the eligibility threshold and are no longer eligible to receive financial support from GAVI for new vaccines, will continue to be able to apply for pneumococcal vaccines through GAVI and UNICEF at the terms and conditions of the Advance Market Commitment (AMC). These countries should note that they will need to fully pay the vaccine co-payment of US$3.50 from the outset. Countries that have not yet applied for pneumococcal vaccines and therefore meet these criteria are: Bhutan, Cuba, Indonesia, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Timor Leste and Ukraine. A simplified application process will apply.
