As we detailed last month, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, is currently approaching a replenishment conference at which it will be asking developing and donor country Governments, businesses, and civil society organisations to help them fund their incredible work over the next five years. Over that period, Gavi is seeking to immunise 440 million more children, saving 6 million lives.
The UK Government has been the biggest historical supporter of Gavi and we want them to keep that up over the next five years. RESULTS, along with colleagues from across the UK campaigning sector have been calling on the UK to come forward with a bold and early pledge to Gavi, but so far none has materialised.
We need to redouble our efforts to get the UK to pledge, and pledge big. Millions of lives are on the line.
