Highlights from the Saving Lives and Livelihoods initiative

The Saving Lives and Livelihoods initiative is a USD 1.5 million partnership between the Mastercard Foundation and the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) that aims to ensure vaccine equity for Africa by purchasing vaccines for more than 65 million people, supporting in the delivery of vaccinations to millions more, and integrating the COVID-19 vaccine into routine immunization in Africa. The initiative supports and contributes to the Foundation’s Young Africa Works strategy, which seeks to enable 30 million young people, particularly young women, to access dignified and fulfilling work by 2030.
