Gavi is an international organisation created in 2000 to bring together public and private sectors with the shared goal of creating equal access to vaccines for children living in the world’s poorest countries. Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, helps vaccinate almost half the world’s children against deadly and debilitating infectious diseases.
Biotext designed a booklet with a collection of articles to assist Gavi in their mission to save lives, reduce poverty and protect the world against the threat of epidemics. It focuses on childhood vaccination in the Indo-Pacific region in 2000–18, as well as their commitment in the next strategic period of 2021–25. These feature articles were written by Australian politicians, leaders of global not-for-profit health organisations, and high-profile vaccine scientists, to support and facilitate successful transition into self-financing vaccine programs in lower-income countries.
The articles were supported with compelling photography from Gavi’s library, as well as infographics portraying the nuances of global funding and Gavi’s future goals.
The booklet was distributed to politicians and corporations to raise the profile of Gavi’s immunisation work and the need for continued funding and support.
