“There’s lots of good news on the power of vaccines, but 22 million children are still missing out.”

— Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI Alliance

Who We Benefit

The GAVI Campaign supports the work of the GAVI Alliance, a global health agency that provides vaccines to children in the world’s poorest countries. Since it was founded in 2000, GAVI has helped immunise more than 440 million children, saving 6 million lives.

One of the most powerful vaccines provided by GAVI is pentavalent, which protects children against five diseases: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B and Hib. GAVI also provides traditional vaccines to protect children against measles, rubella, meningitis A and yellow fever.

And with GAVI support, countries now are introducing new vaccines against the primary causes of two of the biggest childhood killers in the world: pneumonia and severe diarrhoea. Together these diseases account for 30% of child deaths in low-income countries. GAVI also has begun providing the HPV vaccine to help prevent cervical cancer, the leading cause of death among women in GAVI-eligible countries.
