Here’s how Gavi helps lower-income countries get the new vaccines and products they need to address urgent threats to public health – from cholera and COVID-19, to Ebola and pneumonia.
Snapshots from DRC, India and Zambia illustrate country ownership and progress in the fights against Ebola, polio and HPV.
The Vaccine Alliance has been working hard in recent years to build greater resilience in supply chains, an effort that is starting to show results.
Typhoid fever is increasingly resistant to the main antibiotics used to treat it. Gavi is supporting a new vaccine to help control this deadly disease – and fight antimicrobial resistance.
Over 50% more children were immunised in Gavi countries in 2019 than in 2000, yet 10.6 million children continue to miss out entirely on basic vaccinations. Here’s why reaching these children and setting them on the pathway to full immunisation is our highest priority.
Building and maintaining demand for immunisation is an integral part of Gavi’s work to increase coverage and equity. Here’s an insight into how we have achieved this.
To bring countries on a trajectory towards financial sustainability, and to empower them to take ownership
of their vaccination programmes, Gavi has pioneered an approach to co-financing and transition.
One of the vital components to Gavi’s capital structure is the International Finance Facility for Immunisation (IFFIm). A powerful and award-winning financial tool launched in 2006, IFFIm issues Vaccine Bonds on the capital markets against long-term donor pledges.
When disaster strikes a country, the impact on people’s health can be immense and long-lasting. As the effects of climate change are felt around the world through rising temperatures and sea levels, natural disasters are increasingly frequent and intense. The aftermath of floods, hurricanes and other severe weather events brings with it the risk of waterborne and respiratory disease outbreaks.
Gavi’s long-term approach to developing healthy markets for critical vaccines has led to greater stability and security, providing countries with the confidence that supplies will be available to meet their demand.
