The COVAX mechanism includes the COVAX Facility, as well as the COVAX advance market commitment (COVAX AMC) financing instrument. This is enabling 92 low- and middle-income economies to be supplied with donor-funded doses of vaccine. In 2021, Luxembourg made its first vaccine donations under the COVAX mechanism. As of 4 February 2022, Luxembourg had initiated procedures within the framework of Team Europe for the donation of 605 850 doses of vaccines through the COVAX mechanism, and 209 850 doses of vaccine were delivered through the COVAX mechanism to different beneficiary countries: Egypt, Ghana, Pakistan, Rwanda and Vietnam. In addition, Luxembourg Development Cooperation has also made a donation of 56 000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine to Cabo Verde under the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism.

Luxembourg has also contributed EUR 2 million to the C19RM mechanism – the COVID-19 response mechanism of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria – whose funds are channelled into the ACT-A Accelerator. As the operational arm of Luxembourg’s humanitarian action, the team, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the Directorate of Defence, the Luxembourg Army and the CGDIS, has coordinated all Luxembourg’s activities relating to in-kind donations in response to the health situation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, Luxembourg was able to deliver 50 vaccine refrigerators to Burkina Faso and six to Sudan, 56 000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine and 60 000 syringes to Cabo Verde, seven ventilators to Tunisia and eight to Nepal and 350 000 antigen tests to Kosovo.
