We work on the analysis of the institutional architecture established to implement and monitor progress in the fulfillment of global sustainable development agendas, as well as on the interactions that enable the participation of different actors in these processes.


COVAX: Distribution and access to the COVID-19 vaccine

The COVAX mechanism consists of an alliance between several countries that have joint efforts to gather resources for the development of the COVID-19 vaccine and thus guarantee rapid and equitable access to it. Through data and statistics, it is possible to determine which population groups are most at risk due to the pandemic, and which are the most affected countries where the vaccine should arrive faster.

Given the urgency to develop a vaccine against COVID-19, the “Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator” initiative was created in April 2020, to bring together various actors whose financial contribution will allow research for the development of an effective vaccine. More than 170 countries of all income levels are participating in the project,  to benefit the most vulnerable countries.


How can an equitable distribution of the vaccine, especially within developing countries, be guaranteed? The creation of the COVAX mechanism answers this question, enabling a support system to assure a fair distribution.

One major challenge the world faces in the context of the pandemic, is that all countries have access to the vaccine. For this reason, COVAX  aims to bring together different actors who are providing financial support for an equitable distribution. 


What is the COVAX Alliance? This is how the collaborative process to accelerate development, testing, and access to COVID-19 treatments and vaccines works.
