GAVI Objectives

To fulfill its mission of protecting children of all nations and of all socioeconomic levels against vaccine-preventable diseases, GAVI has established six strategic objectives:

  • Improve access to sustainable immunization services

  • Expand the use of all existing safe and cost-effective vaccines, and promote delivery of other appropriate interventions at immunization contacts

  • Support the national and international accelerated disease control targets for vaccine-preventable diseases

  • Accelerate the development and introduction of new vaccines and technologies

  • Accelerate R&D efforts for vaccines needed primarily in developing countries

  • Make immunization coverage a centerpiece in international development efforts
