The Role of IVI Member States
Endorse our Work:
By signing and ratifying the IVI Establishment Agreement, countries publicly affirm their appreciation of IVI’s efforts to shared vision of a world free of infectious diseases. IVI occasionally calls upon its member states to lend a supportive voice to IVI initiatives.
Voluntary Funding and Mutual Development:
IVI places no financial obligations on its member states, but IVI strives to provide a return on investment to its state funders through a variety of collaborative development opportunities.
Information Exchange and Leadership:
IVI meets regularly with the embassies of its member states and signatory countries to exchange information and discuss collaborative opportunities. IVI’s state funders participate in IVI’s governance, where they can influence institutional policies and strategy.
