MSF launched the "Dear GAVI" campaign on 23 April to push for GAVI to extend its discounted prices on vaccines to MSF and other NGOs and humanitarian actors so that we can reach more of the most vulnerable children. In response, GAVI issued a statement and below is MSF's own response.
"Thank you GAVI for publicly acknowledging our request for access to your vaccine prices. MSF has been frustrated by bilateral discussions, which have been ongoing for a few years now, with vaccine manufacturers and the GAVI Alliance on finding a solution for humanitarian actors to access pneumococcal conjugate vaccine at the GAVI price, and we anticipate that accessing GAVI prices for other new vaccines (for rotavirus, HPV) will also be a challenge. We ask GAVI to fast-track this process so that MSF can vaccinate more kids as soon as possible.
