Protecting Our Future:
The Global Forum for Vaccine Sovereignty and Innovation

Launch event: Gavi's Investment Opportunity 2026–2030 and the African Vaccine Manufacturing Accelerator (AVMA)




Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the Government of France and the African Union – together with Team Europe partners – announce The Global Forum for Vaccine Sovereignty and Innovation. The event will be co-hosted on 20 June 2024 in Paris by the President of the French Republic, H.E. Mr. Emmanuel Macron, and the President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania and Chair of the African Union, H.E. Mr. Mohamed Ould Cheikh Ghazouani.

The Forum will launch Gavi’s 2026–2030 Investment Opportunity (IO) to support its next replenishment – which will raise funds for immunisation in lower-income countries for Gavi’s sixth strategic period, from 2026 through 2030 (Gavi 6.0). The Forum will also see the launch of the African Vaccine Manufacturing Accelerator (AVMA), an innovative financial mechanism, designed by Gavi in close collaboration with Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), to help vaccine manufacturers in Africa to scale up production and foster regional diversification of vaccine manufacturing.

AVMA will make a strong contribution to the African Union’s Partnerships for African Vaccine Manufacturing (PAVM) ambition to manufacture at least 60% of the total vaccine doses required on the continent by 2040, as well as the global effort to strengthen African health sovereignty at all times, including for pandemic preparedness and response.


As this will be an in-person event, Gavi will keep you connected through our website and social media channels before, during and after the event – through updates, videos and photos. Watch this space for more information in the coming weeks.
