Berlin, 9 May 2011 – Saving children’s lives through increased immunisation in poor countries also requires healthy vaccine markets with secure supply, competition, and low, transparent prices, Dagfinn Høybräten, the GAVI Alliance Board Chair, said on Monday.
The GAVI Alliance is looking to raise another US$ 3.7 billion for its 2011-2015 programme to immunise 243 million children, but Mr Høybräten told a conference in Berlin that markets are also key.
