Gavi is an international cooperation mechanism that brings together public and private agents to provide support to national health systems to carry out programmes in 73 countries worldwide via which 760 million children in developing countries have been vaccinated.

Characterized by innovative solutions, Gavi contributes directly to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and has an impact on improving life expectancy. Its work, based on multilateral cooperation, brings together all social sectors and unifies efforts in favour of the health of the most vulnerable.

By conferring this Award, the Jury wishes to highlight the importance that immunity through vaccination has as regards public health, as recommended by scientific knowledge.
