Prime Minister Kishida announces that he will contribute an additional $ 500 million to the international framework for distributing vaccines at a summit meeting held online on the night of the 8th to spread the new corona vaccine to developing countries. It turned out that we are making adjustments in the direction.

The "Vaccine Summit" will be held online on the night of the 8th, co-sponsored by an international organization working to spread the new corona vaccine to developing countries and Germany, the chair of the G7 = seven major countries. Will be attended by Prime Minister Kishida.



At this meeting, it was found that Prime Minister Kishida is coordinating to announce a policy of contributing up to $ 500 million to the COVAX Facility, an international framework for distributing vaccines.



Japan has contributed $ 1 billion so far to support vaccines to developing countries, and Prime Minister Kishida has announced to the international community that he will actively contribute to measures against the new corona by expressing additional support. It seems that there is also an aim to appeal.
