Support the COVAX Country Readiness and Delivery Team and the COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership (CoVDP) with the rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations


Support the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in low-and-middle-income countries and in compiling country lessons and experiences.

  • Focus Project
  • To support the COVAX CRD team to ensure country readiness for, and rollout of, COVID-19 vaccination.
  • To support the CoVDP to scale vaccination in countries with low coverage, and to document country experiences and lessons from the pandemic vaccination response.


MMGH supported the Country Readiness and Delivery (CRD) workstream of the COVAX Facility by providing technical support to the WHO and UNICEF Regional Offices, the Regional COVID-19 vaccination taskforces, working groups and countries. This included the provision of technical assistance across all areas of vaccine implementation, as well as facilitation, coordination, training and information exchange. An important component of the initial part of the project was in supporting countries to develop and/or update their National Deployment and Vaccination Plans (NDVPs). In the latter phases of the project, MMGH technical assistance support focused on countries with low vaccination coverage, and on conducting COVID-19 vaccine post-introduction evaluations (cPIEs), and documenting and compiling country experiences and lessons into a web-based Global Compendium of Country Knowledge.
  • Countries received timely guidance with developing or updating their NDVPs and the efficiency of the review and approval process was improved. This was a pre-requisite for the allocation of vaccine doses through the COVAX facility for low-income countries.
  • WHO-UNICEF Regional Offices, Regional Task Forces and countries received periodic updates on new policy guidance, strategic direction, and support with monitoring progress.
  • Countries were supported to conduct cPIEs, and the CoVDP was supported in compiling country experiences and lessons in a publicly available compendium.
