U.K. doubles pledge of support to GAVI

GAVI Alliance CEO Julian Lob-Levyt welcomed the United Kingdom’s pledge of GBP 150 million noting that it “represents a ringing endorsement of our public-private partnership’s mission to save children’s lives and protect people’s health by increasing access to immunisation in the poorest countries.” GAVI said it will use the UK funding, which more than doubles DFID’s previous direct contributions to the Alliance, to help developing countries access vaccines with the greatest potential to achieve progress on the MDGs. http://www.gavialliance.org/media_centre/statements/2010_03_16_dfid_10_year_donation.php
