The largest private foundation in Spain and one of the most important worldwide, ”la Caixa” promotes this pioneering programme for child immunisation in areas of difficult accessibility in Africa and Latin America in a partnership with Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and in cooperation with the Institut de Salut Global de Barcelona (ISGlobal).


The Alliance for Child Vaccination adopts a pioneering formula to encourage corporate social responsibility in Spain: ”la Caixa” and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation multiply each euro donated by four, thereby quadrupling efforts to immunise children against vaccine-preventable diseases.


Thanks to the contribution made by ”la Caixa” Foundation and to the engagement of both employees and customers of CaixaBank, a reference for corporate social responsibility in the banking sector, more than 31 million euros have been raised since 2008 in donations from companies, clients and employees, as well as micro-donations by individual citizens.


The event was attended by chief executive officer of “la Caixa” Banking Foundation, Jaume Giró.
