Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals

Global Vaccine Action Plan 2011 - 2020

The Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) ― endorsed by the 194 Member States of the World Health Assembly in May 2012 ― is a framework to prevent millions of deaths by 2020 through more equitable access to existing vaccines for people in all communities.

GVAP aims to strengthen routine immunization to meet vaccination coverage targets; accelerate control of vaccine-preventable diseases with polio eradication as the first milestone; introduce new and improved vaccines and spur research and development for the next generation of vaccines and technologies.

SAGE assessment reports


The progress towards the achievement of GVAP goals is assessed independently by SAGE. The report for 2014 is available in the four languages below. Additionally, there is a link to all current and past reports as well as a link to the framework to explain how the SAGE Working Group construct the report.

GVAP secretariat report


The GVAP Secretariat Report is prepared jointly by the GVAP secretariat’s agencies (consisting of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI Alliance secretariat, UNICEF, US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and WHO). This detailed technical report is the basis used by SAGE to assess the progress made towards the achievement of GVAP Goals in its SAGE GVAP Assessment report.
