South Korea contributes US$10 million to COVAX AMC

South Korea announced its plan to donate US$10 million to the COVID-19 Vaccines Advance Market Commitment (COVAX AMC), the financial mechanism designed to provide low-income countries equitable and fair access to COVID-19 vaccines.

South Korea's contribution supports Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance's financial goal to be able to secure one billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines for partner countries by the end of 2021.

South Korea has already announced its plan to secure COVID-19 vaccines for 60% of its population through the COVAX Facility, the global procurement mechanism of COVAX's efforts, organized by the World Health Organization and Gavi.
