Managing the Gavi Transition
Gavi provides a variety of support to lower income countries with the goal of accelerating equitable uptake of vaccines, increasing effectiveness and efficiency of immunisation service delivery as an integrated part of strengthened health systems, and improving the sustainability of national immunisation programmes. As countries cross the World Bank’s low-income country threshold, Gavi begins to wind down its financial commitments, while countries increase their co-financing until they become fully self-financing. During the transition process, Gavi intensifies its support to help countries achieve financial and programmatic sustainability. More information about the Gavi transition process can be found on Gavi’s website.
Gavi’s vision for a successful transition is one in which countries have successfully expanded their national immunisation programmes with vaccines of public health importance and sustain these vaccines post-transition with high and equitable coverage of target populations, while having robust systems and decision-making processes in place to support the introduction of future vaccines.

Other Focus Areas
Financing immunisation programmes
Ensuring the financial sustainability of immunisation programmes requires securing new domestic resources for immunisation and strengthening the planning, budgeting, and financial management capacity of immunisation programmes. Explore our Health & Immunisation Financing dashboard to see how Network countries compare to each other in terms of economic performance and health financing.
Strengthening immunisation programme performance
Ensuring the sustainability of immunisation programmes requires maintaining or strengthening core immunisation programme functions. These include collecting, analyzing, and using program, coverage, and surveillance data to make decisions; establishing and regularly consulting advisory bodies to improve governance and decision-making; ensuring an adequate pipeline of skilled immunisation professionals at all levels of the health system; and advocating for immunisation in the context of larger health program changes, such as primary healthcare reform.
