The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced today that the U.S. Government will commit $1 billion over FY 2015-2018 to Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, subject to Congressional approval. The U.S. contribution will support Gavi’s plan to immunize 300 million additional children and save at least 5 million lives by 2020. Providing new and underutilized vaccines to the world's poorest countries is a key driver in ending preventable child deaths by 2035.
