Canada is sending $790 million to an organization founded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that works with the World Health Organization to make vaccines available across the world.

As President Donald Trump has frozen funding to the World Health Organization, Canada is sending nearly $800 million to an Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, an organization founded by Bill Gates that works with the WHO to provide universal access to vaccines, and the the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, an organization created by the WHO.

According to a press release from the office of Canadian Minister of International Development Karina Gould, the money will come in one payment of $600 million, followed by a promised $47.5 million over the next four years.

From the press release:

The Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of International Development, today announced new support to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s end-game strategy, toward ensuring regular routine immunizations for hundreds of million children around the world. The Minister made this announcement at the launch of the Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security virtual meeting, which she co-hosted alongside her counterparts from Denmark, Qatar, the Republic of Korea and Sierra Leone.

This replenishment funding ensures that Gavi is able to build on its incredible reach with vaccinations by identifying opportunities for advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights programming, in partnership with communities and local organizations. Predictable financing will allow Gavi to save between 7 million and 8 million lives.

Gavi is currently helping low-income countries respond to COVID-19 outbreaks, including making additional funding available for strengthening health systems. When a COVID-19 vaccine is developed, Gavi will be well positioned to ensure the scale-up of manufacturing, access and allocation, along with timely delivery, of new vaccines in vulnerable countries.
