Additional Financing El Salvador COVID-19 Emergency Response

The purpose of the proposed Additional Financing project is to support the Government of El Salvador  to purchase and deploy the COVID-19 vaccines and to strengthen relevant health systems that are necessary for a successful deployment. The additional financing will finance both the scale-up of project activities and new activities designed to contribute to the achievement of project objectives. The additional financing seeks to enable the acquisition of vaccines from a range of sources to support El Salvador’s objective of having a portfolio of options to access vaccines under the right conditions. The project will assist the acquisition of  enough doses to vaccinate approximately 10.5 percent of the country’s 6.8 million population.
