The mRNA Technology Transfer Programme Funders
The programme continues to receive exceptional support both from high-income countries and from LMICs. This is seed money and the aim is for the project to be self-sustaining after 2026. Funds are used to cover the overall coordination of the project, the establishment of the mRNA hub activities in SA, the development of innovation and products and to directly support the spokes for technology transfer. A large portion of the funds has been secured.
Secured funds are from: the African Union, Belgium, Canada, European Commission, France, Germany, Norway, South African Government and South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC).
