We are waiting for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development to issue guidelines on the specific reporting of vaccine donations. We are actively engaging in the discussions at the Development Assistant Committee (DAC) on the proposals for valuing Covid-19 vaccines in Official Development Assistance (ODA). It is important that DAC members take a consistent approach to the donation of these life-saving vaccines to the greatest degree possible and we welcome the DAC Secretariat's efforts to reach consensus.
