70 % of the world’s children live in the world's 75 poorest countries

GAVI's focus is helping countries improve children's health.  Delivering support, both financial and technical, forms the core of the Alliance's efforts.

Eligible countries applying to GAVI should:

  • Prepare a proposal for the type(s) of support they want that meets GAVI's criteria using the current proposal form (see approved proposals here).

After they have successfully completed the application process countries must meet the following monitoring requirements:

  • Send an annual progress reports to GAVI;
  • Undergo a Data Quality Audit in the second year of funding, if they are receiving Immunization Services Support;
  • Submit a Financial Sustainability Plan, ideally in conjunction with their first annual progress report.

GAVI first invited countries to apply for support in 2000.  By the end of 2004, 71 out of 75 countries had successfully applied, and GAVI's current commitments now total more than 1.2 billion. Cuba, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Timor Leste have not yet approached GAVI.
