  • Submissions are welcome from registered nonprofit, civil society, community-based, and for-profit organizations working in any country and territory in the world. Participants must be serious about advancing their solution beyond the Challenge, and be beyond the piloting stage of their program/product/service.
  • Although applications from any country are accepted, please note that Gavi currently focuses in and targets specific countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Somali, Uganda, Haiti, India, Niger, Pakistan, Senegal) to strengthen urban immunisation programs. They are especially excited to see submissions from these countries and regions.
  • Technical experts and industry leaders will review submissions based on their proven ability to accelerate, improve, upgrade processes and service delivery across the immunisation value chain, accelerating coverage and equity in immunisation; the extent to which they have considered cost-effectiveness, potential time to scale, level of impact, evidence base, strength of business model and the team, and adaptability. Solutions that have originated in a developing country, have track records with respected public and private partners, can be replicated in at least French and English speaking countries, and are sensitive to issues of gender empowerment and environmental challenges are encouraged to apply.
  • INFUSE is not seeking early-stage innovations for research or pilot projects. To be successful, an innovation must have advanced beyond the pilot stage and be capable of being deployed at a large scale within six to twelve months.
