Two key factors set us apart from other actors in global health:
In this section, we explain Gavi’s partnership model and explain the role of each of the Vaccine Alliance’s members.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's initial pledge of US$ 750 million in 1999 provided the seed money to launch Gavi.
As a founding member of Gavi and the UN's specialist agency on global health issues, WHO is a key Vaccine Alliance partner.
As the world's biggest buyer and supplier of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF has a pivotal role in the Vaccine Alliance.
The World Bank brings the expertise of the world's biggest source of development assistance to the Vaccine Alliance.
Developing countries are the most important part of the Vaccine Alliance. They apply for support, manage grants and finance immunisation programmes.
Industrialised country governments' experience and funding ensure health is prioritised in development programmes.
CSOs help deliver vaccines to remote communities, implement vaccine programmes and advocate for immunisation.
More than half of Gavi vaccine suppliers are based in emerging markets.
Gavi harnesses the technical expertise of the IFPMA to ensure new vaccines are available that address the needs of developing countries.
Partnering with the research community allows Gavi to tap in the latest information and thinking from the scientific, medical and product delivery communities.
From 5 to 15 vaccine manufacturers supplying Gavi – from 1 to 8 based in emerging markets.
2001: 5 vaccine manufacturers - 1 based in an emerging market;
Mid 2015: 15 vaccine manufacturers – 8 based in emerging markets.
