Gavi CEO as special guest with DCVMN Executive Committee

Geneva, 13 April 2015 – as the World Immunization Week 2015 approaches the Executive Committee of DCVMN had the pleasure and honour to host a special guest, Dr. Seth Berkley, Chief Executive Officer of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

The informal dialogue was around the sustainability of vaccine supply to close the immunization gap between wealthy and the world’s poorest populations. Many of the 44 DCVMN corporate members, based in 16 developing countries and territories, have supported Gavi for over a decade by supplying high-quality prequalified vaccines, when and where needed. Berkley conveyed the news that the commitments made by donors at the recent Gavi Pledging Conference will enable to immunize an additional 300 million children in poor countries between 2016 and 2020, and recognized the importance of the DCVMN constituency in supporting the global health achievements, in making the world a healthier place, through most affordable vaccines available to Gavi.
