International Finance Facility for Immunisation: building a financial lifeline from the world’s investors to its poorest children
Every year, 22 million children miss out on vaccines against common diseases. 1.5 million die from easily-preventable diseases
Shortage of secure, predictable funding stops developing countries planning long-term health programmes for their children
IFFIm was set-up in 2006 to accelerate the availability and predictability of funds for immunisation programmes
IFFIm raises finance by issuing 'vaccine bonds' in capital markets, converting long-term government pledges into immediate cash
UK, France, Italy, Norway, Australia, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, South Africa have committed US$ 6.5b to IFFIm spanning 23 years
IFFIm funds help Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. In 15 years, Gavi has prevented over 7 million future deaths
IFFIm funds catalyse uptake of vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b
IFFIm funds strengthen immunisation and health service delivery through health worker training and support for cold chain and logistics
