Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance was founded to ensure a secure supply of vaccines at affordable prices to developing countries. Since its inception, private sector partnerships, through the mobilisation of resources or the leveraging of expertise and innovation, have been integral to Gavi's success.
Partnering with Gavi creates an opportunity for private sector partners to join a global alliance. Together, we can save lives, create sustainable socio-economic benefits and take a leading role in global development.
Gavi has already protected an entire generation of children and is now working to protect the next by supporting health systems as well as funding global stockpiles for Ebola, cholera, meningitis and yellow fever vaccines. With the support of it sprivate sector partners, through innovative financing and the latest technology – from drones to biometrics – it will continue to save millions more lives, prevent outbreaks before they can spread and help countries on the road to self-sufficiency.
Supporting Gavi CORE immunisation programmes increases equitable and sustainable use of vaccines, transforming the lives of individuals, helping to boost the economies of lower-income countries and making the world safer for everyone. For more information on Gavi’s priorities see here.
COVAX is the only global initiative that is working with governments and manufacturers to ensure COVID-19 vaccines are available worldwide to both high-income and lower-income countries. Gavi leads on procurement and delivery at scale for COVAX: designing and managing the COVAX Facility and the Gavi COVAX Advance Market Commitment to ensure equitable access to a vaccine – wherever they are, and whatever their income level.
Funding Gavi COVAX AMC from the private sector means more doses for lower-income countries and more flexibility to help us prepare for the future – meaning a faster end to the acute phase of this pandemic for the whole world and getting on track for global economic recovery.

Make an immediate and lasting impact
Investing in immunisation leaves a long-lasting legacy. Immunised children are protected for life. They are more likely to stay in school and build a productive future, both for themselves and their communities.
HOW DO WE COLLABORATE WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR?
By establishing strategic partnerships with leaders in business and industry we are able to use the private sector's financial resources, operational expertise, thought-leadership and innovation to support our goals on vaccine coverage and equity.
EXPERTISE BASED PARTNERSHIPS
We work with private sector partners to develop long-term relationships and create sustainable impact. Corporations can partner with Gavi by sharing industry expertise, technology, and know how to overcome the stubborn bottlenecks that prevent vaccines being available for every child.
Increasing demand for new vaccines is placing ever greater pressure on immunisation delivery systems in developing countries. We are continuously looking to foster innovation, in close collaboration with private businesses and the technology industry, to address these issues.
Launched in 2011, the Matching Fund doubles multiplies private sector partners' impact by doubling their investment. By encouraging business to invest in immunisation, the Gavi Matching Fund has been a critical component in the expansion of our private sector engagement.
