South Africa

In 2007, South Africa announced a commitment of US$ 20 million to IFFIm over 20 years. With that pledge, South Africa became IFFIm’s seventh sovereign donor, and its first BRICS (emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) supporter. A key priority for South Africa is enhancing international cooperation, the continued prioritisation of the African continent, and the attainment of Susatainable Development Goals in African countries.  Since its inception in 2000 and in collaboration with 40 African governments, Gavi has helped introduce nine vaccines into routine immunisation programmes in multiple countries, reaching 364 million unique children.

The National Treasury of the Republic of South Africa stated that IFFIm is one of the innovative financing solutions that provide resources needed to meet shortfalls in funding the health sector. Further, South Africa finds IFFIm a unique and successful approach to mobilise additional resources to finance SDGs by frontloading future flows of ODA.
