Bill and Melinda Gates Pledge $10 Billion in Call for Decade of Vaccines

  • Improved routine immunization:  Partnerships focused on reducing diseases like polio and measles are also helping build a stronger foundation for the delivery of both new and existing vaccines.  Trained health workers, proper cold chain function, and surveillance are all necessary to ensure vaccines reach every child who needs them.

  • R&D momentum:  The vaccine research and development pipeline is more robust than ever.  Late-stage trials have begun on a promising vaccine to protect children from malaria, and a new vaccine to prevent meningitis outbreaks in Africa is likely to be introduced this year.

  • Many of the recent advances in vaccine development and delivery have been driven by public-private partnerships such as the GAVI Alliance and the Rotavirus Vaccine Program at PATH, which coordinate the resources and expertise of vaccine companies, donors, UNICEF, WHO, the World Bank, and developing countries.  Mr. Gates said these partnerships are "transforming the business of vaccines."

    The GAVI Alliance -- launched at the World Economic Forum 10 years ago this week -- has reached 257 million additional children with new and underused vaccines, and prevented 5 million future deaths.  In the coming years, GAVI will focus on rapidly introducing vaccines to tackle diarrhea and pneumonia.
