The GAVI Alliance Board has announced their approval of the strategic framework that would support a fully funded Alliance, enabling developing countries to immunize 300 million additional children from 2016-2020. This new initiative could saves over five million lives.

This has put countries on target to immunise almost a quarter of a billion children between 2011 and 2015, saving close to four million lives.
