Sweden to contribute 40 million dollars to IFFIm
font size    

The Swedish Government has decided that Sweden will contribute nearly 40 million US dollars over a period of 15 years to the International Finance Facility for Immunisation (IFFIm), Radio Sweden reported on Tuesday.

The intention is to help the international community to rapidly obtain more resources for increased vaccination in the poorer countries of the world.

According to the government, the fight against communicable diseases is one of four priority areas in Swedish development cooperation.

The idea behind Sweden's long-term, but financially limited, support to IFFIm is to show donor countries that are not able to immediately allocate extra funds from national budgets still can quickly increase aid in an area given priority, according to the Swedish broadcaster.
