This year, millions of children will receive the new pneumococcal vaccine, which protects against the world's biggest killer of children, pneumonia.
By supporting the introduction of this new vaccine to more than 40 countries, GAVI aims to prevent some 700,000 deaths by 2015 and up to seven million deaths by 2030.
The introduction of this new vaccine is a critical contribution to MDG4 on child mortality, the two thirds reduction of child mortality between 1990 and 2015.
