Two key factors set us apart from other actors in global health:

  • The partnership model: as a public-private partnership, we capitalise on the sum of our partners’ comparative advantages;
  • The business model: by pooling demand for vaccines from the world’s poorest countries, securing long-term funding and shaping vaccine markets, we are accelerating access to life-saving vaccines in the countries that need them the most.

In this section, we explain Gavi’s partnership model and explain the role of each of the Vaccine Alliance’s members.
