 +"GAVI is the kind of innovative partnership we need to bring vaccines to the children who need them most -- and to demonstrate to industry that if they develop vaccines for the poorest countries, we will help pay for them. That is why I have asked the [[:Congress]] to invest $50 million this year in the [[:Global Fund for Children's Vaccines]] to support GAVI's work", said U.S. President [[:Bill Clinton]].
 +The Global Fund award process is designed to efficiently channel resources to developing country health systems. Approximately 98% of current Global Fund resources will go directly to national immunization programs. Thirty more countries are expected to submit proposals to the [[:Global Fund]] for the next review in October; subsequent reviews have been scheduled throughout 2001 and early 2002. The intention is to provide some form of support to all 74 eligible countries – those with income of less than $1,000 GNP per capita – over the next two years.
 +"This new approach – issuing an open call to eligible countries and asking them to design improved immunization programs based on local needs and conditions – is clearly resonating among donors and developing country officials," said [[:Carol Bellamy]], Executive Director of UNICEF, and a member of the GAVI Board.
 +Countries will receive financial and technical assistance either to strengthen basic immunization systems or to introduce newer, under-used vaccines such as [[:hepatitis]] B and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Some countries will receive support in both areas. Initial grants of vaccines and funding are made based on a careful review of the country applications, which require comprehensive five-year plans demonstrating increased government investment (and decreased external aid) over time. Subsequent grants will be made depending on the country's ability to implement the plan and meet its goals.((https://web.archive.org/web/20210618203713/https://www.gatesfoundation.org/Ideas/Media-Center/Press-Releases/2000/09/The-Global-Fund-for-Childrens-Vaccines))
