Correction: On two occasions in GFO 122, we spelled out what GAVI stands for. On one occasion, we got it right ("Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation.") On the other occasion, we got it very wrong ("Global AIDS Vaccine Alliance.") Our apologies not only to GAVI, but also to IAVI ("International AIDS Vaccine Initiative").
