Malaria vaccines require innovative financing mechanisms.
To help ensure that malaria vaccines are not only available but also affordable, MVI encourages, supports, and monitors the progress and development of existing, new, and innovative financing mechanisms through which the donor community can support malaria vaccines.
MVI supports “push” and “pull” financing mechanisms to ensure that an effective malaria vaccine gets both developed and distributed.
Push mechanisms are financial incentives that serve to drive research in areas that might not have as robust a natural market as others. MVI’s support to partners working on a range of vaccine approaches in industry, government, and academia typically functions as push funding.
Pull mechanisms are financial incentives to bring products to market, such as a commitment by donors to buy an effective vaccine when one is actually developed.
