The GAVI Matching Fund is a major new private sector programme designed to raise US$ 260 million for immunisation by the end of 2015. Under the initiative, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have pledged about US$ 130 million combined (UK£ 50 million and US$ 50 million, respectively) to match contributions from corporations, foundations and other organisations, as well as from their customers, members, employees and business partners. This will allow GAVI to deliver more life-saving vaccines to the lowest income countries. Healthy children lead to healthy communities and healthy societies.
