[Event] France to offer €2 billion in potential coronavirus aid to Francophonie member nations

##France to offer €2 billion in potential coronavirus aid to Francophonie member nations

Paris, France - 03 April 2021, AFP

At an emergency session of the ministerial conference of the Francophonie, the French representative to the Francophonie, Leïla Slimani, has announced that France intends to launch a coronavirus aid program aimed specifically to provide member nations an opportunity to get cheaper vaccines. With the global south very much behind the north in vaccinations and some southern nations being unable to obtain vaccine doses and store them safely, Slimani said that “this program aims to help our French-speaking sister nations to vaccinate their populations.”

There are two components to this program, assisted financing of obtaining vaccine doses and infrastructure loans to build vaccination clinics, deep-freeze storage for vaccines, and transportation to distribute doses. Slimani announced that France has negotiated lower prices for Pfizer (€2.60/dose) and Moderna (€12.40)/dose vaccine doses and that it will help cover some of the costs for them. In what France calls their “Assisted Financing Deals”, nations can buy 200,000 to 600,000 doses from €520,000 for 200,000 Pfizer doses to €2.48 million for 600,00 Moderna doses. Nations can also buy vaccines through loans, with 300,000 to 1,500,000 doses available in these loans. Loans will range from €780,000 for 300,000 Pfizer doses to €18.6 million for 1,500,000 Moderna doses.

In addition to vaccine doses, France is also offering loans to help build up the infrastructure needed to distribute and administer the vaccines, from €1 million to €12 million. It is also granting to each member a €300,000 grant, enough to build 2 vaccination clinics from the ground up.

France has estimated that the maximum cost from this program can reach around €2 billion, but has estimated that the real cost will be somewhere around €1.42 billion. Although quite noble in thought, the French taxpayers may not be pleased to hear €2 billion of their money going to other nations in this time of financial need.
