Public-Private Partnerships Benefit Global Health, GAVI CEO Writes

In a post featured on PSI’s “Impact” blog, GAVI Alliance CEO Seth Berkley writes about the benefits of public-private partnerships in global health. “…One example of this public-private partnership model is my organization, the GAVI Alliance, whose mission is to save children’s lives and protect people’s health by increasing access to immunization in developing countries. Since 2000, GAVI has helped immunize more than 440 million children and prevent six million deaths in the process. … The GAVI model is designed as a sustainable approach that puts countries on track to self-sufficiency. If we — the public and private sectors — collectively seize the moment, we can accelerate progress toward a world where every child, everywhere, is fully immunized. And we all will be better for it” (4/14).
