The UK supports the expansion of vaccine manufacturing in low- and middle-income countries and is working with international and regional partners (including Gavi, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the Partnership for African Vaccine Manufacturing (PAVM)), development banks and the private sector to catalyse strategic investments for vaccine manufacturing in these countries. The UK is the second largest funder of Gavi, who are developing a strategy to support regional manufacturing capacity in low- and middle-income countries. The strategy aims to address barriers to investment in regional manufacturing and support efficient market outcomes.
