The central aim of the International Finance Facility for Immunisation Company (IFFIm) is to help save more children's lives and to do so faster, in order to support the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals . IFFIm has been designed to accelerate the availability of funds to be used for health and immunisation programmes through the GAVI Alliance (formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) in 70 of the poorest countries around the world. By investing the majority of resources up front—“frontloading”—this innovative funding programme will increase significantly the flow of aid to ensure reliable and predictable funding flows for immunisation programmes and health system development during the years up to and including 2015. An anticipated IFFIm investment of US$4 billion is expected to help prevent five million child deaths between 2006 and 2015, and more than five million future adult deaths by protecting more than 500 million children in campaigns against measles, tetanus, and yellow fever.
