Agence Française de Développement, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and GAVI Sign on Innovative Partnership to Increase Vaccination Rates in Six Sahel Countries

The Agence française de developpement, Gavi and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation signed an innovative partnership worth EUR 100 million at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, in the presence of Minister Laurent Fabius and Minister of State for Development and Francophony, Annick Girardin. The partnership aims to increase vaccine coverage in six French-speaking countries of the Sahel region: Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Chad. This three-way financing agreement will facilitate the introduction of new vaccines and renewal of existing programmes, as well as strengthening the healthcare systems of the countries concerned. Due to the efforts made by these countries, vaccine coverage has improved significantly in the last decade, but the proportion of children receiving all basic vaccines remains too small. France reaffirmed its support for GAVI during the GAVI Pledging Conference in Berlin on 27 January 2015, where the Minister of State for Development and Francophonie, Annick Girardin, announced this pilot initiative, in addition to a new commitment of EUR 150 million to the International Finance Facility for Immunization (IFFIm). This conference helped raise USD 7.5 billion to launch effective vaccination campaigns and prepare the future.

Sika's Board To Buy Out Founding Family's Stake

Sika AG's (SWX:SIK) Board of Directors plans on buying the stake of the company's founding family Burkard in a bid to prevent Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A. (ENXTPA:SGO) from taking over Sika, Sonntagszeitung reported, citing sources in the know. According to the report, the Board is ready to pay the family's Schenker-Winkler Holding AG CHF 2.25 billion for the stake. Sika spokesman Dominik Slappnig confirmed the offer to news agency AWP on April 20, 2015, but did not disclose the offer price, saying only it includes a premium. At the same time, SWH spokesman Andreas Durisch told AWP the family is not aware of an alternative offer and stressed any proposal that does not include Saint-Gobain is unacceptable. However, Sika's management and some shareholders, including Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Cascade Investment, L.L.C., have expressed their fierce opposition to the deal with Saint-Gobain and initiated a lengthy battle with the family. According to Sonntagszeitung's report, the family would retain a part of its stake for the time being to profit from any rise in the share price.
