Only national governments may receive support from the Vaccine Fund (NGOs, research institutes, etc., are not eligible). Basic eligibility for support has been set according to national income: countries with GNI per capita below $1,000 – 75 in all – are eligible.
The general criteria for funding are:
- A well-functioning national mechanism to coordinate activities among health ministry, multilateral agencies, donors and other groups including NGOs (often called an Inter-agency Collaborating Committee, or ICC);
- A comprehensive assessment of the immunization program within the last three years; and
- A multi-year plan for routine immunization (incorporating recommendations of above-mentioned assessment).
- A strategy for improving safety of injections in the immunization system.
