IFFIm has delivered on its goal to frontload, disbursing US$ 2.6 billion to support vaccine purchase and delivery to 71 developing countries

Gavi has led the effort to vaccinate close to 640 million children in the 2000–2016 period, saving more than nine million lives in the long term. Without IFFIm funds, this would not have been possible.

In total, US$ 2.6 billion has already been disbursed to support vaccine purchase and delivery to 71 developing countries.


Breakthrough vaccines

In addition, IFFIm has been instrumental in helping Gavi fund breakthrough vaccines quickly and securely.

For instance, IFFIm financed more than 90% of Gavi's promised payment to UNICEF to secure initial doses of pentavalent, a single shot of which immunises against five infectious diseases: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) and hepatitis B.

Gavi could not have made that promise, including upfront cash payments, without its ability to rely on long-term, stable funding from IFFIm.


Gavi has supported close to 400 vaccine introductions and campaigns since 2000.
