[French]

As a public-private partnership including civil society, the Vaccine Alliance plays a catalytic role providing funding to countries and demonstrates "added-value" by:

  1. advocating for immunisation in the context of a broader set of cost-effective public health interventions;
  2. contributing to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs);
  3. supporting national priorities, integrated delivery, budget processes and decision-making;
  4. focusing on innovation, efficiency, equity, performance and results;
  5. maximising cooperation and accountability among partners through the Secretariat;
  6. ensuring gender equity in all areas of engagement.

65 million

Nearly 65 million children in Gavi-supported countries received three doses of a DTP-containing vaccine (including pentavalent vaccine) in 2014. This equals almost 200 million contacts with the primary health system every year and can provide a robust platform for other health interventions.
