Childhood immunisation: GAVI partnership records extremely encouraging results

Funding provided by the Monegasque Cooperation, a partner of Gavi, l’Alliance du Vaccin to combat child mortality, led to 10,000 children in Burundi being vaccinated against pneumococcus last year and a measles immunisation campaign being set up in Burkina Faso this year.

The aim of this partnership is to help improve child health by expanding access to the vaccination of children in several of the least advanced countries in Africa.

From 2017 to 2020, funds allocated by the Monegasque Cooperation will enable 105,000 children in the target countries of the Government of Monaco[1] to be inoculated, representing 1,000 lives saved. Within this context, Burkina Faso has just launched an extensive measles immunisation campaign which is targeting 1.2 million children aged between 6 months and 5 years.

1.7 million children still die every year from a vaccine-preventable disease, i.e. one life every 20 seconds.

For the reader’s information, it was at the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie’s Summit that the Gavi Alliance and the Government of Monaco signed a funding agreement representing half a million Euros over a four-year period (2017-2020) in order to expedite the vaccination of thousands of children in the Principality’s priority developing countries.
