The World Trade Organization (WTO) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) yesterday launched the WTO-IMF Covid-19 Vaccine Trade Tracker, a new database aimed at providing greater transparency on the cross-border flow of Covid-19 vaccines.
The portal reveals data on the trade and supply of vaccines by product, country and arrangement type.
It provides an array of data on total vaccine supply to date, exports by producing economy and by supply arrangement type, imports by income group and by continent, supply by manufacturing economy and vaccine type, supply to continents and vaccination status.
It draws information from a variety of sources that include the COVAX Global Vaccine Market Assessment, the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), the World Bank Group and the African Vaccine Acquisition Task Team (AVATT).
Updates on the data will be provided every month to reflect latest developments.
