GAVI Making Progress On Promises, But ‘Much Left To Do’

“[W]ith two years to go” to reach the GAVI Alliance’s goal of “help[ing] developing countries immunize an additional quarter of a billion children by 2015, and prevent[ing] four million future deaths in the process,” Dagfinn Høybråten, chair of the GAVI Alliance Board, writes in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, “[T]here is indeed much left to do if we are to fulfill our promises.” He summarizes progress made and reported in GAVI’s Mid-Term Review, and he notes some of the organization’s success stories “have now been captured in a series of impact stories showing the extraordinary efforts being made by implementing countries and GAVI partners to ensure that vaccines reach the children who need them, wherever they are” (10/31).
