FIIM IFPMA logo The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Associations ( IFPMA ) provides the forum for representation of the industrialized country vaccine industry in GAVI. The IFPMA represents over 55 national industry associations from both developed and developing countries. Companies in membership of the IFPMA are the major global research-based pharmaceutical and vaccine companies.

The vaccine-producing members of the IFPMA have a long-standing legacy of working with international public health agencies to ensure the enhancement of health for children globally, through immunization. Through the alliance, member partners address ways to accelerate the development and introduction of new vaccines specifically needed by developing countries.
