Meeting in Washington, DC and seeking to address the devastating resurgence of measles, the Board approved up to an additional US$ 162 million to control and prevent outbreaks in developing countries.

This decision topped a year of progress outlined in a report card reviewing developments since GAVI's first pledging conference on 13 June 2011, at which donors pledged funding to immunise an additional 250 million children by 2015 to save four million lives.
