Partnership Contribution

The Partnership Contribution (PC) is one element of the PIP Benefit Sharing System. It is an annual cash contribution to WHO by influenza vaccine, diagnostic and pharmaceutical manufacturers who use the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance and Response System (GISRS).

Partnership Contribution Collection

Every year WHO issues a questionnaire that identifies potential contributors. It is distributed to existing contributors, to all companies and institutions that conduct research and development in the field of influenza, and to all recipients of PIP biological material recorded in the Influenza Virus Traceability Mechanism (IVTM) database.

Partnership Contribution Implementation

Consistent with the Framework, WHO uses the funds provided under the PC to strengthen influenza pandemic preparedness and response capacities in countries that require such support. Specifically, in 2012, the WHO Executive Board decided that for the period 2012-2016, 70% of the contributions should go to preparedness and 30% to response. The use of the funds is updated quarterly on the PIP PC Implementation Portal.
