The Covax Facility is co-led by World Health Organization (WHO), GAVI, a Vaccination Alliance and Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI). The facility is currently backing the development of nine vaccine candidates. A successful development of a vaccine against COVID-19 is the most pressing challenge of our time but also the best shot at ending the COVID-19 pandemic.
