The strategic framework includes eight principles, intended to define the Vaccine Alliance’s characteristics, its business model and its aspirations – such as making missed communities the first priority, being gender-focused, country-led and sustainable, being innovative, collaborative and accountable.
The framework also includes four “strategic enablers” that will contribute to delivering on the new strategy. These are critical elements that the Alliance, including countries, need to put in place to successfully achieve the four strategic goals. They are:
- secure long-term predictable funding for Gavi programmes
- ensure global political commitment for immunisation, prevention and primary health care
- use evidence, evaluations and improved data for policies, programmes and accountability
- leverage the private sector including through innovative finance mechanisms and partnerships
Operationalisation of the strategy
Adapting the Alliance’s operating model to the strategic goals and objectives of the next period is critical. As such, the Alliance has launched the ‘operationalisation’ phase following the June 2019 Board decision to ensure it is ready to deliver on Gavi 5.0 starting 2021 – by reviewing and transforming Gavi’s policies, strategic approaches, processes and tools.
