Monitor the progress towards establishing the public health benefit and demand for rotavirus and pneumococcal vaccines in developing countries

Responsible entity: Secretariat
Completed by: December 2005
Total budget: $494,490

Total budget includes Secretariat's salaries: $364,490

Target description and how it will help reach GAVI milestones

One of GAVI’s strategic objectives is to accelerate the development and introduction of new vaccines and technologies into developing countries. After a thorough investigation, GAVI identified two priority vaccines, Streptococcus pneumonia and rotavirus, for its initial efforts. These diseases are responsible for the deaths of nearly 2 million children each year, and both have promising candidate vaccines in advanced stages of development. The ADIP's aim to shorten the lag between vaccines being proven safe and effective for use in the industrialized world and their introduction in developing countries. GAVI has awarded PATH and Johns Hopkins University's ADIP projects with 30 millions for each project. This task aims to ensure the GAVI Board monitoring of the ADIP's progress.

PNEUMO & ROTA MILESTONE: Monitoring of ADIP projects allows GAVI Board to direct and influence if necessary the progress towards reaching the milestone.

Justification for selection of activities

The ADIP Management Committee needs facilitation support from the GAVI Secretariat to monitor ADIP projects activities and to advise GAVI Board on go/no-go decisions.

Alignment of ADIP research focus with vaccine introduction efforts ensures better integration with other GAVI priorities.


Activities Budget Coordinating partner/ support partners Expected outcomes
GAVI ADIP Management Committee meetings and teleconferences $130,000 Secretariat ADIP MC • The review of ADIP progress, future plans and budgets will be done at the Committee meetings (on a biennial basis); this will form the bases for GAVI Board endorsement for projects support. Interim teleconferences will provide additional forum for discussions.
Alligning of ADIP research focus with ongoing GAVI vaccine introduction efforts: ad-hoc meetings $0 Vaccine Fund VPP UNICEF FTF WHO • The ADIP projects and other GAVI ongoing activities are working in synergy towards the common objectives of improving access to life-saving vaccines.
Post-ADIP-s options and action plan $0 ADIP teams GAVI Board VF ADIP MC • GAVI Board and Vaccine Fund will be presented with draft investment cases by ADIP teams to initiate the discussion of rota and pneumococcal vaccine introduction support to VF eligible countries. Post ADIPs options will be discussed.
