             As part of our continued commitment to strengthen global health security and provide support for fair and equitable access to vaccines, Singapore will contribute USD15 million over five years to the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI).  This was announced by Mr Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Health, at the Global Pandemic Preparedness Summit 2022.


2.         COVID-19 has shone the spotlight on perennial under-investment in pandemic preparedness. There is a clear need for increased collective financing and action, such as in vaccine development and production. The contribution from Singapore will go towards CEPI’s mission of accelerating vaccine development against emerging infectious diseases and enabling equitable access to these vaccines.


3.           Singapore has a strong interest and stake in pandemic preparedness and we strongly urge all countries to work towards collective global action for a strengthened global health system. Singapore will continue to work closely with the global community to overcome this pandemic together and prepare better for future ones.
