Les 10 et 11 décembre 2018, les Émirats arabes unis (EAU) accueilleront à Abu Dhabi une conférence de haut niveau pour l’évaluation à mi-parcours de Gavi 2018. Cette conférence permettra de dégager de nouvelles perspectives d'avenir pour le modèle de Gavi et fera le point sur les performances de l'Alliance à mi-parcours de sa période stratégique actuelle de cinq ans (2016-2020).

« L’évaluation à mi-parcours ne se limitera pas à analyser les résultats des dernières années, elle contribuera également à concevoir l'avenir du modèle novateur de Gavi, » a déclaré Seth Berkley, directeur exécutif de Gavi, dans la perspective de cet événement.

 

With innovation integral to the UAE Foreign Assistance policy, we look forward to continuing to work together with Gavi to support innovative health approaches that make a real difference to developing countries, ensuring that every child is protected with life-saving vaccines.

Investment opportunity

In 2015, Gavi’s 2nd pledging conference, hosted by Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, saw unprecedented support from donors. Backed by the G7, Gavi raised more than US$ 7.5 billion to help deliver on an ambitious investment opportunity. By 2020, Gavi will have vaccinated an additional 300 million children since 2016, resulting in more than 5 million lives saved and economic benefits of US$ 80-100 billion.

The Abu Dhabi conference will also mark the 10th anniversary of some of Gavi’s innovative financing instruments, such as the International Financing Facility for Immunisation (IFFIm).
