Got vaccines? Got life!
Got vaccines? Got life!

Ever asked 'why Gavi?'

The short answer: 1.5 million reasons

The number of children under five who still lose their lives every year to diseases that could be prevented by vaccines. Since 2000, our Alliance has brought together public and private sectors to ensure equal access to vaccines.

The long answer: 10 million reasons

By December 2018, when Alliance partners meet in Abu Dhabi for our mid-term review, Gavi will have helped deliver life-saving vaccines to 700m people. Over time, this will prevent 10m deaths – unlocking the potential of 10m additional lives.

In the build-up to our mid-term review meeting in the United Arab Emirates on 10-11 December, which will help guide our future vision, stories published on will show how Gavi’s public-private partnership model has delivered 18 years of innovation and progress in immunisation.

This website showcases lessons learned from our partnership model. The holistic approaches that are transforming the global immunisation landscape can benefit other development challenges: from strengthening health systems to meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
