Quad Initiative

At the first Quad Leaders’ Summit on 13 March 2021, the Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced $100 million as Australia’s contribution towards the Quad Vaccine Partnership.

The partnership, to be guided by a Quad Vaccine Experts Group, will expand and coordinate the efforts of the US, Japan, India and Australia to increase vaccine supply and support effective delivery in the Indo-Pacific region.

The partnership will collaborate with multilateral organizations including the World Health Organization and COVAX.

Australia will contribute $100 million for the provision of vaccines and “last-mile” delivery support with a focus on Southeast Asia.
