Namuhla iBill & Melinda Gates Foundation kanye noWellcome bathembise u-US$150 million ngamunye ngesamba sezigidi ezingama-US$300 ku-Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), ubambiswano lomhlaba wonke olwethulwe eminyakeni emihlanu edlule kuleli sonto ohulumeni baseNorway naseNdiya, Gates Foundation, Wellcome, kanye neWorld Economic Forum. Lezi zithembiso ziza ngaphambi kwengqungquthela yomhlaba wonke yokugcwalisa kabusha ngoMashi ukuzokweseka uhlelo olunombono lwe-CEPI lweminyaka emihlanu lokulungiselela kangcono, ukuvimbela, kanye nokusabela ngokulinganayo ezifeni eziwumshayabhuqe nezifo eziwubhadane ezizayo.

Selokhu yasungulwa, i-CEPI ibambe iqhaza elibalulekile lesayensi ekunqandeni izifo eziwumshayabhuqe emhlabeni wonke, yengamela impumelelo eminingi kwezesayensi nokubeka ukulungela ubhubhane enkabeni ye-ajenda yezempilo yomhlaba wonke ye-R&D. Lapho ubhubhane lwe-COVID-19 luqala, i-CEPI yaphendula ngokushesha, yakha elinye lamaphothifoliyo amakhulu kunawo wonke emhlabeni futhi ahlukahlukene kakhulu abantu abazogomela i-COVID-19—abangu-14 sebebonke, okuhlanganisa abayisithupha kubo abasaqhubeka nokuthola uxhaso, kanti abathathu kubo banikezwe izimo eziphuthumayo. sebenzisa uhlu lweNhlangano Yezempilo Yomhlaba (WHO).

I-CEPI yenze ukutshalwa kwezimali kusenesikhathi ekuthuthukisweni komgomo wokugomela i-Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19, manje osesindisa izimpilo zabantu emhlabeni jikelele. Ngenyanga edlule, umuthi wokugomela i-COVID-19 kaNovavax osekelwe kumaprotheni - oxhaswe kakhulu yi-CEPI - uthole uhlu lokusebenzisa izimo eziphuthumayo ze-WHO futhi ulungele ukusiza imizamo yokulawula lo bhubhane emhlabeni jikelele. Imithamo engaphezu kwebhiliyoni eyodwa yomuthi wokugomela i-Novavax manje isiyatholakala ku-COVAX, uhlelo lomhlaba wonke oluholwa yi-CEPI oluhlose ukuletha ukufinyelela okulinganayo emithini yokugomela i-COVID-1. I-CEPI iphinde iqhubeke nokusebenza emithini yokugomela i-COVID-19 yesizukulwane esilandelayo, okuhlanganisa nemithi yokugomela “ehlukile” ye-COVID-19 kanye nesibhamu esingavikela kuwo wonke ama-coronavirus, okungenzeka asuse usongo lwemibhadane ye-coronavirus yesikhathi esizayo.

Ngale kwe-COVID-19, i-CEPI igcwalise igebe elibalulekile ekusekeleni ukulingana komgomo eceleni kwe-R&D. I-CEPI njengamanje isekela ucwaningo nokuthuthukiswa kwemithi yokugoma efinyeleleka kalula kwezinye izifo ezithathelwanayo, okuhlanganisa nemithi yokugoma yokuqala ngqa ukufinyelela izivivinyo zomtholampilo ngokumelene negciwane elibulalayo le-Nipah ne-Lassa. Le nhlangano iphinde yabamba iqhaza elibalulekile emizamweni yokuqeda i-Ebola, okuhlanganisa nokusekela ukuthuthukiswa komuthi wokugomela i-Ebola wesibili nguJanssen. Ngaphezu kokuthuthukisa isayensi eyisisekelo yokuthuthukiswa komuthi wokugoma kanye nezinkundla ezintsha zokugoma, i-CEPI igxile ekwehliseni ngendlela emangazayo isikhathi esisithathayo ukwenza imithi yokugoma esindisa impilo kunoma yiluphi usongo olusha lwegciwane (okubizwa ngokuthi “Isifo X”)—kuye phakathi kwezinsuku eziyi-100 ze-pathogen. ilandelana. Lokhu kumelela inhlanganisela yesikali nesivinini esingahle sisindise izigidi zezimpilo kanye nezigidigidi zamadola.

Lo bhubhane ubuye wanda ngamagagasi emhlabeni wonke, egqamisa indima ebalulekile yezinhlangano zamazwe ngamazwe njenge-CEPI ezibeka ukufinyelela okulinganayo emnyombweni wenjongo yazo. Imininingwane yakamuva evela eNyuvesi yaseNortheastern ikhombisa ukuthi ukutholakala kwemithi yokugoma emazweni anengeniso ephansi njengeKenya bekufana nalokho emazweni anemali engenayo ephezulu njenge-UK noma i-US, amaphesenti angama-70 okufa kwe-COVID-19 kuze kube manje ngabe agwenyiwe.

I-United Kingdom izosingatha ingqungquthela yokugcwaliswa kabusha kwe-CEPI ngoMashi 8, 2022, eLondon. Umcimbi wokuqongelela imali uzobiza ohulumeni, ama-philanthropists, nabanye abaxhasi ukuze basekele uhlelo lweminyaka emihlanu lwe-CEPI lokubhekana nobungozi bezifo eziwubhadane nobhubhane, okungenzeka kuvinjwe izigidi zokufa kanye nezigidigidi zamadola ekulimaleni komnotho.
