European Council reaffirms Team Europe’s commitment to global fight against pandemic


The European Council on 23 April approved conclusions reaffirming Team Europe’s full commitment to the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and its health, social, economic, humanitarian, security and political impacts. With this approach, the EU is showing leadership, responsibility and solidarity with those most affected by the pandemic.

Team Europe remains at the forefront of global efforts to ensure international access to vaccines, with a €2.47 billion contribution to the COVAX initiative. Thanks to this, COVAX deliveries are picking up speed and to date over €40.5 million doses of vaccine have been delivered to more than 100 countries worldwide.

Team Europe consists of the EU, its member states and their diplomatic networks, and financial institutions such as national development banks, the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
