Innovative financing mechanism accelerates global roll out of vaccine against world’s leading cause of child deaths
Pneumococcal vaccines are new, complex vaccines that would normally reach low-income countries 10-15 years after their introduction in industrialised countries.
Thanks to the pneumococcal Advance Market Commitment, children in 50 Gavi-eligible countries are being immunised against the main cause of pneumonia today.
The 2015 Pneumococcal AMC Annual Report gives an overview of the activities linked to the implementation of the pilot Advance Market Commitment from 1 January to 31 December 2015.
It was developed by the AMC Secretariat at Gavi, in collaboration with the World Bank and UNICEF’s Supply Division, and was approved by the Independent Assessment Committee on 1 April 2016.
