Description

The risk of continued community spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Mongolia remains substantial. Since the first case of community transmission was reported on

10 November 2020, several clusters of local transmission have emerged in the capital city and six provinces.

Proposal. The Government of Mongolia officially requested ADB support for securing safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. The proposed project seeks to provide a loan, through the Asia Pacific Vaccine Access Facility (APVAX) facility, amounting to $40 million to support COVID-19 vaccine delivery in Mongolia.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The request is aligned with ADB's access and eligibility requirements for APVAX. There is clear adverse socio-economic impact of the pandemic in Mongolia, and strong actions led by the government in implementing national COVID-19 response, and the vaccination strategy and plan. The government has also secured Mongolia's participation in COVAX AMC and coordinating its efforts with development partners, including WHO, UNICEF, the World Bank, and ADB. The government intends to purchase COVAX eligible WHO prequalified COVID-19 vaccines that meets ADB's vaccine eligibility criteria and requirements for financing under the Rapid Response Component of the APVAX.
