GAVI eligible countries map

Gavi aims to focus its support on the world's poorest countries. Eligibility is therefore determined by national income with all countries with a Gross National Income (GNI) per capita below or equal to US$ 1,580 (according to World Bank data for the latest available year) qualifying for support.

There are currently 53 Gavi-eligible countries. However, not all of these countries qualify for every type of support because Gavi sets conditions for each type of support.

Support is provided in response to country proposals, which are reviewed by an independent group of experts - mostly health officials from developing countries.
