About Us

Civil society organisations (CSOs) play a crucial role in immunisation, and maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH). More than 4000 CSOs - including non-governmental organisations, advocacy organisations, professional and community associations, faith-based organisations and academia from around the world - come together to form the Gavi CSO Constituency. Together we help advance Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance vision of a world where all children are reached with life-saving vaccines.

The role of CSOs in immunisation is multi-faceted and includes: direct service provision, creating demand for immunisation and child health services, advocating for increased access to immunisation and acting as a watchdog to ensure that government and international actors are accountable to the people and communities they serve. CSOs have one seat on the Gavi Board and also participate in Board committees and task teams.
