Summary:
It's a 34 billion USD industry that's saving millions of lives, but is the money spent on vaccines going as far as it should? The market is now dominated by the public-private partnership, the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization - Gavi. Working with governments and pharmaceutical companies, it's negotiated lower prices for many important vaccines. But critics say Gavi is too close to the supplier and that its purchasing decisions are being influenced by some donor countries.
