Our Impact So Far

  • Our funding purchased over 1,900 cold-chain refrigerators for Vietnam to replace ageing refrigeration units and ensure cold chain capacity for remote and hard-to-reach communities.
  • Our funding supported UNICEF to develop a suite of health communications about how to administer COVID-19 vaccines for local Centers for Diseases Control (CDCs) across 63 provinces and deliver online training to implement the COVID-19 vaccination program in Vietnam.
  • Our funding also helped UNICEF conduct a nationwide survey on the behavioural and social drivers concerning the COVID- 19 vaccine to inform the vaccination campaign.

* Funding includes Vaccine Access and Health Security Initiative, Quad Vaccine Partnership and bilateral funding.
