Our Work

GHAI supports civil society organizations (CSOs) to secure social and political will for equitable and sustainable financing for immunization and primary health care; work towards increasing immunization coverage for priority vaccines in focus countries including HPV with a special emphasis on reducing the number of children who do not receive any vaccines (zero-dose children); and ensuring efficient use and allocation of domestic resources and international donor funds for primary health care and immunization service delivery.


Our Activities

GHAI draws upon our budget advocacy framework and successes in increasing domestic financing for preventing epidemics, hypertension and primary health care to supports CSOs in these countries to:

  • Engage political decision-makers about the need for sustainable financing for immunization and primary health care.
  • Build government, civil society and media capacity to advocate for domestic health financing.
  • Demonstrate demand for investments in immunization and primary health care to increase immunization coverage and reduce the number of zero-dose children through media coverage and public discourse.
  • Develop political strategies to remove bottlenecks affecting the allocation and spending of immunization and primary health care funds.
  • Track budget writing, allocation and spending to inform advocacy.

This work is supported by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.
