Gavi to heighten engagement with countries transitioning into Vaccine Alliance

Monday, June 15, 2015

The Vaccine Alliance recently announced a series of actions that will support the new goals of the Alliance’s 2016-20 strategy, and the Gavi Board has chosen to assist the countries making the transition into the new practices.

The new measures include an improved focus on equity and coverage, heightened support for countries transitioning with Gavi funding, and better promotion of maintaining vaccination programs.

“There is absolutely no reason why children should miss out on vaccination because of where they live,” Dagfinn Høybråten, chair of the Gavi Board said.
