Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance is a global partnership bringing together public and private sectors with the shared goal of creating equal access to vaccines for all children. As a public-private partnership, our Alliance represents all the key stakeholders in global immunisation: implementing and donor governments, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, civil society, the vaccine industry and private companies. Drawing on the individual strengths of its members, Gavi pools country demand, guarantees long-term, predictable funding and brings down prices, helping to ensure that generations of children in poor countries do not miss out on life-saving vaccines.

The Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) is a framework approved by the World Health Assembly in May 2012 to achieve the Decade of Vaccines vision by delivering universal access to immunization. The mission outlined in the GVAP is straightforward: improve health by extending by 2020 and beyond the full benefits of immunization to all people, regardless of where they are born, who they are, or where they live.
The Global Vaccine Action Plan has two great ambitions. First, to deliver vaccination to all - because 1.5 million children still die every year of diseases that can be prevented by the vaccines that humankind has developed. Second, to unleash vaccines’ vast future potential - because their impressive history is just the foundation stone of greater achievements to come.
