GAVI takes first steps to introduce vaccines against cervical cancer and rubella

Responding to demand from developing countries, the GAVI Alliance will take the first steps towards the introduction of Human papillomavirus (HPV) and rubella vaccines in developing countries.

If negotiations to secure a sustainable price from manufacturers are successful and countries can demonstrate their ability to deliver the vaccines, up to two million women and girls in nine countries could be protected from cervical cancer by 2015.   Click here to learn more.


“la Caixa” Foundation Commits € 4 million to the GAVI Matching Fund

The GAVI Alliance praised “la Caixa” Foundation’s leadership and generosity in donating € 4 million (US$ 5.7 million) to GAVI’s new Matching Fund,  a public-private initiative designed to raise funds for GAVI’s immunisation programmes in poor countries.

The donation – plus additional funds collected from “la Caixa” bank’s customers and employees – is particularly impactful because it will be matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, bringing the total amount pledged to at least  € 8 million (US$ 11.4 million) over two years.   Click here to learn more.
