A statement by the European Commission said that the “Global Goal: Unite for our Future” pledging summit held on June 27 by the European Commission and Global Citizen mobilised 6.15 billion euro in additional funding to help develop and ensure equitable access to coronavirus vaccines, tests and treatments.

The money raised will also support economic recovery in the world’s most fragile regions and communities, the statement said.

This amount includes a 4.9 billion euro pledge by the European Investment Bank, in partnership with the European Commission, and 485 million euro committed by EU member states.

This brings total pledges under the Coronavirus Global Response pledging marathon, launched by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on May 4, to 15.9 billion euro.

The summit resulted in commitments for the production capacity of over 250 million vaccine doses for middle and lower income countries. Details of pledges are available here.
