Drawing on the individual strengths of the Alliance partners, Gavi pools country demand, guarantees long-term, predictable funding and brings down prices.
LEVERAGING ECONOMIES OF SCALE
Gavi aggregates demand from the world’s poorest countries, sending a clear signal to manufacturers of a large and viable market for vaccines. Gavi-supported countries represent more than half of the world’s birth cohort.
All countries pay a share of the cost of their Gavi-supported vaccines. As a country’s income grows, its co-financing payments gradually increase to cover the full cost of vaccines.
Predictable, long-term donor support is another cornerstone of our model. It provides the security for countries to adopt vaccine programmes. It also makes it possible for manufacturers to make new investments in production capacity.
