Two key factors set the GAVI Alliance apart from other actors in the field of international health aid:
In this section, we explain GAVI’s partnership model and profile the role of each of the Alliance’s members.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's initial five-year pledge of US$ 750 million in 1999 provided the seed money to launch GAVI.
As a co-founder of GAVI and the UN's specialist agency on global health issues, WHO is a key implementing partner.
As the world's biggest buyer and supplier of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF has a pivotal role in the GAVI Alliance.
The World Bank brings the expertise of the world's biggest source of development assistance to the Alliance.
Developing countries are the most important part of the Alliance. They apply for support, manage grants and finance immunisation programmes.
Industrialised country governments' experience in overseas development and funding ensure health is prioritised in aid programmes.
CSOs help deliver vaccines to remote communities, implement vaccine programmes and advocate for immunisation.
GAVI aims to make vaccines more affordable for low-income countries by expanding the range of suppliers to include developing country manufacturers.
GAVI harnesses the technical expertise of the IFPMA to ensure new vaccines are available that address the needs of developing countries.
Partnership with the research community allows GAVI to tap in the latest information and thinking from the scientific, medical and product delivery communities.
GAVI has provided funding to strengthen health systems and immunisation services in more than 70 countries.
