According to ADB website, the project will provide the Government of Bhutan with immediate and flexible financing to support its national coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination program through the Asia Pacific Vaccine Access Facility (APVAX) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The APVAX allocation comprises the rapid response component (RRC) to support the purchase of the APVAX-eligible COVID-19 vaccines. This will strengthen the disease surveillance, while enhancing the accessibility of essential health care services and immunization.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
