The conference

The Global Vaccine Impact Conference marks a critical milestone in Gavi's current strategic period. Co-hosted by the Government of Spain, the meeting will convene world leaders and immunisation experts to take stock of the Vaccine Alliance's progress against key objectives and develop strategies to address the challenges and opportunities of the future. The conference's theme, "Raising Generation ImmUnity" celebrates the Vaccine Alliance's achievement in protecting a whole generation of children from potentially fatal infectious diseases since 2000.



Sustainability message

To mitigate the environmental impact of the Global Vaccine Impact Conference and balance the CO2 emissions caused by the travel and logistical necessities of the event, Gavi has worked with MyClimate to invest in a project to provide biogas systems to benefit Nepalese families.

This project reduces CO2 emissions, improves health, creates jobs, supports women, reduces deforestation and improves soil health, biodiversity and habitats.

Host Country and Support


Spain, a long-standing supporter of Gavi, will host the conference. Spain has played a crucial role in supporting vaccination during the pandemic as a donor of COVID-19 vaccines via the COVAX dose-sharing mechanism. The Spanish government has also contributed funding to the Gavi COVAX Advance Market Commitment (AMC) and pledged towards Gavi's malaria vaccine programme. This support is underpinned by a long-standing partnership with "la Caixa" Foundation.
