§ Lord Moynihan
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether funding will be made available from the Department for International Development, for the proposed Cuba-Africa hepatitis and HIV vaccines project in Africa. [HL2547]
§ Baroness Amos
Our approach to funding work on vaccine development is to support multilateral efforts, for instance through the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), for which we are providing £14 million over five years. We also support the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI) for which we are providing £35 million over five years focusing on research, development of new vaccines and effective delivery of services. We will not therefore support the Cuba-Africa project.
