The Guardian Examines GAVI Mid-Term Review, Ongoing Meeting

The Guardian examines the GAVI Alliance’s 2013 Mid-Term Review report, which “says [the group] is on track to enable developing countries to immunize an additional quarter of a billion children by 2015, but acknowledges that it needs to improve on equity.” GAVI “will assess its progress in Stockholm, Sweden, on Wednesday,” when “[a]bout 150 participants are expected to gather in the Swedish capital, including GAVI’s partners (WHO, UNICEF, World Bank, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), donors and potential donors, implementing countries, the private sector, civil society, members of parliament and vaccine manufacturers.” According to The Guardian, “GAVI has secured total funding of $7.4 billion for 2011-15, but has yet to begin planning for after 2015” (Tran, 10/30).
