US$500m challenge: Gavi launches INFUSE 2.0 - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance has launched INFUSE 2.0, an innovation scaling hub to accelerate immunisation systems upgrades for the world’s most in-need countries, and worth $500million, reports 
ITREALMS.
INFUSE 2.0, ITREALMS gathered, comes with features as collective of commercial and philanthropic investors focused on supporting global health entrepreneurs. The initiative also introduces a first-of-its-kind digital platform to simplify connections between communities, innovators and the private sector to make it easier and faster to share expertise. Impact evaluators will also help start-ups, investors and stakeholders better track and amplify the impact of their innovations on immunisation and global health.

By 2030, INFUSE 2.0 expects to secure at least US$ 500 million in private investment to promote access to new and under-used vaccines and immunisation innovations in the fight against deadly and debilitating infectious diseases.

“The pandemic has rolled back years of progress improving vaccine coverage in the world’s most vulnerable countries,” said Dr Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. 

“With millions more children now at risk of deadly, preventable diseases, we need to ensure the most promising, most scalable innovations reach the countries that need them, urgently. INFUSE 2.0 can do just that, bringing together investors looking for impact with entrepreneurs who can deliver it to help protect children across the world.”

The new initiative builds on Innovation for Uptake, Scale and Equity in Immunisation (INFUSE) 1.0, launched in 2016, which has cultivated a community of start-up innovators overcoming vaccine delivery challenges. Initial investments in INFUSE totalled more than US$ 60 million, leading to more than US$ 200 million in follow-on funding for global health innovators.
