Recently, a growing number of governments are exploring the best way to involve and engage the private sector to maximize their response to COVID-19 and to guarantee an equitable delivery of the COVID-19 vaccines for all.

  • Identify potential areas for private sector participation and concrete strategies to harness private sector resources;
  • Share emerging country examples of engagement with the private sector to deliver COVID-19 vaccines.
