Vaccine Fund resource mobilization level of $400 million/year achieved by end of 2006 (interim 2005 milestone for this effort is roughly $325 million/yr)

Responsible entity: The Vaccine Fund
Completed by: December 2005
Total budget: $0

Target description and how it will help reach GAVI milestones

Allows for GAVI partners to meet current commitments, including assuring sufficient supply of vaccines are available to meet national needs at a reasonable price using innovative vaccine procurement agreements. Achievement of the target will be crucial to the long term credibility and future viability of GAVI and the Vaccine Fund.

ALL MILESTONES: Alliance fundraising goals will not be met unless VF/GAVI secretariat led fund-raising efforts are closely aligned with the GAVI strategic planning process, recognize the needs of the partners and are based on well considered plans that clearly delineate the roles and responsibilities of each of the partners.

Justification for selection of activities

Establishing a consistent fundraising base can only be accomplished if efforts are based on a well considered fund raising strategy that fully captures the capabilities of the all the partners, and has sufficient human resources for its implementation.

The ambitious fundraising targets will only be met if:

  1. they are based on rigorous analyses of commitments to date,
  2. success to date is effectively communicated,
  3. future resources mobilization plans are integrally aligned with Alliance priorities which resonate both nationally and globally,
  4. the effort efficiently harnesses and integrates the capabilities of all of the GAVI partners, and
  5. plans effectively use all of the attributes of the alliance in an innovative fashion.

Opportunities to capitalize use of the Vaccine Fund balance sheet attribute will be crucial to the long term credibility and future viability of GAVI and the Vaccine Fund. Opportunities currently being explored include

  1. new vaccine procurement agreements (including multi-year guaranteed agreements),
  2. creative means for stimulating vaccine development and introduction and
  3. innovative new instruments that can be used to finance immunization programs such as IDA buy downs.
