star this property answer text <p>The UK is concerned about the rising number of measles cases globally and is supporting efforts to reduce these in low income countries through investment in Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. The UK is the largest donor to Gavi, which has helped immunise over 700 million children since 2000 and prevented more than 10 million deaths from vaccine preventable diseases.</p><p> </p><p>Gavi is helping to reduce the number of measles cases by supporting routine immunisation. This is supplemented by rapid vaccination campaigns to stem outbreaks when they occur and limit the spread. Over 67 million people have been vaccinated through Gavi against measles through routine immunisation and over 370 million people have been vaccinated through campaigns.</p><p> </p><p>The UK will host Gavi’s replenishment in 2020, demonstrating the UK's continued strong commitment to support Gavi's efforts to save children’s lives from measles as well as other vaccine preventable diseases.</p> more like this
