Fifth GAVI Board Meeting, 21-22 June 2001, London, England

June 2001

Countries in Complex Emergencies


The paper was commended for its breadth of information and clarity.


The Board:

  • Agreed to the recommendations in the paper, namely:

    • Using its advocacy channels, GAVI will encourage international and national authorities to include longer-term support to immunization services in their resource mobilization efforts during the acute conflict phase, to ensure sustained funding.

    • In countries with well-functioning national governments and relatively high immunization coverage, there may be vulnerable populations within their borders that are not reached by the health system. GAVI will encourage partners to ensure that immunization services are reaching those at risk.

    • In countries where governments are weak or non-functional, GAVI will consider proposals submitted by an operational partner or partners (such as WHO and UNICEF), engaging the multiple partners most suited to reach all parts of the countries (e.g., UNHCR, Médicins sans Frontières) with those partners taking responsibility for implementation.
