The Brazilian government is donating this Monday (13) in London, $ 20 million to the organization Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (whose acronym in English is Gavi). GAVI is an international initiative, launched 11 years ago, whose purpose is to enable worldwide access to vaccination. Shares in the last 10 years, prevented at least 5 million deaths. But the group estimates that about 2 million children under 5 years die from diseases that are preventable.

The donation will be made in Brazil during the conference of Gavi, which brings together specialists from different countries to discuss what measures should be taken to increase opportunities for access to vaccines, strengthening immunization and health systems and implement new technologies immunization .

The conference goal is to ensure the achievement of the Millennium Goals by 2015, reducing by two thirds the number of children dying under 5 years. To ensure this goal, GAVI estimates that it will take $ 3.7 billion to immunization programs in the period 2011 to 2015.

According to the organization, in general there has been progress in vaccination and immunization systems in the world. However, about 2 million children die every year from diseases that are preventable. Most deaths occur in poor countries due to problems resulting from diarrhea and pneumonia - account for 40% of total deaths.

Besides the developed countries and some developing countries like Brazil, are partners of the GAVI World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and World Bank, and the vaccine industry, technical agencies and research and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
