The international system for the development and distribution of life saving vaccines to the children of the poorest countries has never functioned adequately. While the heaviest burden of infectious disease is found in the South, it is the market in the North that determines which diseases are targeted for vaccine development, based upon the price that can be expected in the Industrial world. There have been a number of attempts in recent years to radically shake-up and reorganize the dis-articulated international immunization 'system,' and this book looks in depth at the most promising and innovative of them. The book deals with the pioneering work of the Bill and Melinda Gates Children's Vaccine Program (CVP), and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) which it helped to form, and their attempt to achieve equity between the North and the South in their ability to access modern vaccines In addition, this study endeavors to give the reader a clear, insider's view of the difficulties faced by those who try to translate ideals and humanitarian aspirations into effective action in the real world. Those dedicated to selfless Good Works, no less than those concerned with every day self-aggrandizement, must contend with the intricacies of individual, organizational, and national politics, that stand between noble intentions and effective public policy.
