>>Back to the 13th GAVI Board Meeting
Increasing the resources available for health from developing country government budgets is as important as increasing overseas development aid.
The Board welcomed the development of common analyses of the funding gap for reaching immunization-related MDGs. These analyses will be formulated through the IFF planning process (see below) and the WHO/UNICEF global immunization strategy consultative process.
Fundraising activities will be more effective if partners are consistent in what they say about these strategies and resource needs, and the specific roles of The Vaccine Fund and different partners in the global effort. Messaging needs to be developed as part of the work being undertaken by the coordinating group on global advocacy.
