In December 2012, the Gavi Board approved a policy that allows tailored approaches to be applied to fragile states and time-limited responses to be extended to countries in short-term emergency situations, with the aim to improve or protect immunisation systems in Gavi-supported countries. The policy enables Gavi to work with our partners to strengthen our focus on countries that require more intensive support and attention.

Transparency and accountability policy
If Gavi is to deliver on its mission, it must take some risk, and do everything possible to mitigate that risk. Donors realise this, but also rightly expect risks to be minimised and action to be taken when misuse is uncovered.
Vaccine donation policy
Donations of vaccines by industry to international organisations or to governments can bring benefits if properly managed, but also carry certain risks. Gavi only accepts vaccines donations under exceptional circumstances and requires both the manufacturer and recipient country to comply with a number of conditions.
