Vaccines – the exemplar of a cost-effective public health intervention – reach only a fraction of those who need them. Perhaps just 10% of the world’s children receive all 11 vaccines recommended by the WHO, says Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Reversing that imbalance is the public-private partnership’s mission. Founded in 2000, Gavi has helped developing countries immunize more than 600 million children and prevent more than 8 million deaths.
