Gavi is a Private-Public Partnership established in 2000 with the aim of saving children’s lives and protecting people’s health by increasing the coverage of vaccines in lower-income countries. Gavi has helped 73 lower-income countries introduce and expand immunization, strengthen health systems and shape markets for vaccines.
Gavi sets a five- year replenishment cycle. “The launch meeting of replenishment” is held prior to the next replenishment meeting in order to discuss financial needs and resources mobilization targets. The 3rd Replenishment Meeting will take place in 2020 in the UK. The past Gavi replenishment-related meetings were held in Europe. The meeting will be held for the first time in Asia.
