The U.S. Government's Galvanizing Multi-Year Financial Commitment to Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance

Benchmarking Progress and Looking Ahead: Gavi's Replenishment 

At the 2024 Global Forum for Vaccine Sovereignty and Innovation, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden announced the U.S. Government's pledge of at least $1.58 billion to support Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, over the next five years. This commitment builds on a 24-year partnership that has immunized over a billion children and saved 17 million lives. The new funding aims to vaccinate the next billion children within a decade, saving over eight million lives by reaching unvaccinated children, expanding vaccinations for diseases like malaria and cervical cancer, and enhancing emergency health preparedness.

This pledge marks the U.S. government's first-ever five-year commitment and represents an eight percent increase from previous support. Additionally, the launch of the African Vaccine Manufacturing Accelerator will help African countries produce vaccines locally, promoting vaccine equity and swift responses to future health crises. USAID is a leader on global immunization efforts, and looks forward to partnering with Gavi to make this period its most impactful ever.
