Routine immunization by Gavi has enhanced the foundation of UHC that Japan has pursued. At the G7 Hiroshima Summit, the G7 announced the G7 Hiroshima Vision for Equitable Access to MCMs, stressing the importance of equity, inclusivity and other principles. Based on this Vision, the G7 launched the MCM Delivery Partnership. Japan will work with and within Gavi, an essential actor for these efforts.
