GAVI welcomes Australia Independent Review of Aid Effectiveness

GAVI said it welcomed the Australian Government-commissioned Independent Review of Aid Effectiveness and “commends the Australian Government on clearly and transparently setting out the strategic directions for Australia’s aid programme through to 2015.”  The review “commends GAVI’s critical work in providing life saving vaccines to children in the poorest countries in the world and for offering Australia a ‘proven, respected and innovative multilateral mechanism for further developing its interest in supporting countries in Africa, while at the same time minimizing the risk of aid fragmentation’ ”.
