The government of Malawi received an additional $30million to support the acquisition and deployment of safe, affordable and effective COVID-19 vaccines. This is an additional financing for the existing Malawi’s COVID-19 emergency response and health systems preparedness project bringing the total donor contribution to the country’s health sector COVID-19 response and vaccination efforts to $37 million. The Minister of Health, Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda had this to say about the additional funding.
As Malawi rolls out the second phase of vaccination which extends beyond the initially targeted group, the demand for more vaccines to reach a larger share of the population is huge. This financing will therefore help Malawi acquire and deploy safe and effective vaccines according to our National Vaccine Deployment Plan
