After the success of the Global Vaccine Summit 2020, we turn our attention to Gavi 5.0, which between 2021-2025 will aim to immunise an additional 300 million children with an emphasis of reaching children left furthest behind. 

To maximise the impact of Gavi 5.0, we require renewed and improved policies on equity, transition, CSO engagement and access, whilst making tangible commitments to ensuring the immunisation lies at heart of efforts to strengthen Primary Health Care (PHC) and achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC). ‘Seizing the Opportunity: Recommendations for Gavi 5.0’, authored by organisations in the ACTION Global Health Advocacy Partnership, outlines the policy commitments needed to overcome stagnating global immunisation rates and accelerate progress on achieving equitable access to lifesaving early childhood vaccines.
