India supplies coronavirus vaccines abroad under the Maitri Vaccines program (can be translated from Sanskrit as “vaccine friendship”) on a grant basis and on the basis of bilateral contracts. In April of this year, India was forced to stop the export of such drugs amid a sharp increase in the incidence of COVID-19 in the country. After the introduction of a billion doses of vaccines to the population in India, the government of the country eased restrictions on the supply of coronavirus drugs abroad and resumed their export in October.
