Gavi's innovative approach is guided by internationally agreed standards, principles and goals that aim to harmonise the efforts of donors, developing countries and aid agencies
We are committed to global health and development initiatives designed to harmonise support for developing countries. Each initiative sets common standards and objectives against which development organisations can design and measure their programmes; they also help to harmonise policies and programmes and increase their accountability.
International agreements like the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the International Health Partnership, also provide forums for us to share lessons from our own approaches and learn from others' experiences.
Decade of Vaccines Collaboration: Gavi serves on the Leadership Council of the DoV Collaboration and provides critical expertise and leadership as part of the organisation’s steering committee.
International Health Partnership: aims to improve the way international agencies, donors and developing countries work together to develop and implement national health plans.
Millennium Development Goals: Gavi contributed to the United Nations' eight time-bound targets – with a deadline of 2015 – known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Sustainable Development Goals: immunisation plays an important role in achieving the majority of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted at the end of 2015.
It's better to prevent a disease than to treat it, both from a moral and an economic standpoint. This is a why the United Nations included vaccines for all – as well as universal health coverage – as key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Lower-income countries are disproportionately affected when disaster strikes: clean water and sanitation may be interrupted, access to and delivery of essential health services disrupted, and people temporarily or permanently displaced.
