GAVI Board Meeting, 21-22 June 2001, London, England
Relationship between the Vaccine Fund and GAVI
While the proposed logo for the Vaccine Fund received
enthusiastic support from the GAVI Board, the Board requested that
more work be done on the design of a new GAVI logo; once this is
received the appropriateness of a GAVI logo should be discussed.
Discussion of a new GAVI logo will be via email/teleconferences,
so that the final decision can be made by the time of Childrens
Summit in September. This would coincide with the first meeting
of the new Vaccine Fund board in New York.
Systems to increase linkages between GAVI and the
Vaccine Fund, especially between the two Boards, the GAVI Secretariat
and Fund management, the GAVI Working Group and Fund Executive Committee,
must be further developed.
The linked but distinct roles of GAVI and the Vaccine
Fund would be better understood if the role of GAVI that is not
directly related to the Vaccine Fund could be more clearly defined.
- endorsed the name change of the Global Fund for
Childrens Vaccines to The Vaccine Fund and endorsed
the new logo selected by the Fund Board;
- endorsed the recommendation that GAVI and the Vaccine
Fund have separate but mutually reinforcing logos and graphic
identities, and that language to convey the relationship, such
as GAVI: partnering with the Vaccine Fund, be used;
- recommended that the outcome of the branding study
on GAVI and the Fund be rapidly disseminated to the different
levels of the GAVI partners, in order to promote consistent messages
throught the GAVI network;
- endorsed the idea of increased linkages through
common supervision of the GAVI Secretariat and Fund management
by the Working Group and the Executive Committee of the Fund;
- requested that the relationships among the partners
in the Alliance be further explored and discussed, especially
in regard to the two Boards.
