Covid Funding: Riyadh and Doha make vaccine pledges
Saudi Arabia committed $150m to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (Gavi), during an online summit hosted by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on 4 June. The funds are a re-announcement of a contribution made in April, as part of pledges by G20 countries to deal with the coronavirus. Qatar also pledged $20m at June’s Global Vaccine Summit. The event raised a total of $8.8bn from 32 donor governments and 12 organisations, far ahead of its $7.4bn target.
