02 Mar Africa: GAVI Alliance Welcomes UK Multilateral Aid Review
GAVI recognised for critical role in reducing childhood deaths through vaccination and bringing together immunisation partners.
The GAVI Alliance welcomed a UK Government review issued today that found the public-private partnership to be highly cost effective and critical in reducing deaths among children under five years old.
Commissioned by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the review was part of a process to ensure maximum value from the UK’s contributions to international organisations such as the GAVI Alliance.
The Multilateral Aid Review (MAR) said GAVI played a unique role in increasing finance for immunisation and bringing together all immunization partners and wider partners in global health. It identified GAVI as a “strong strategic fit with DFID priority objectives given its core focus on health and strong poverty focus.”
