To enable CDC to scale up its activity of investing and lending to support the building of businesses in developing countries, to create jobs and make a lasting difference to people’s lives in some of the world's poorest places. CDC is DFID’s main vehicle for investing in private companies in Africa and South Asia. CDC encourages capital investments from other private investors by being a first mover, demonstrating to other investors that commercial returns are possible in these frontier markets, and by sharing risk and expertise. The additional equity from DFID will enable CDC to meet demand for capital in its target markets and allow CDC to sustain a higher volume of more developmental investments across priority regions and business sectors

Gavi currently works in 73 countries to save children’s lives by increasing equitable use of vaccines in the world’s poorest countries (the number will reduce as countries graduate from Gavi support). Gavi immunises children against vaccine preventable diseases including measles, rubella, cervical cancer (via the human papilloma virus vaccine) and certain types of pneumonia and diarrhoea. Pneumonia and diarrhoea are two of the biggest causes of deaths among children in the developing world and cervical cancer is a leading cause of death for women in Africa. Gavi will also have an important role to play if effective vaccines are produced against malaria and ebola. During 2016-2020, Gavi will in particular target reaching those in hard to reach areas in its target countries. Gavi also works with manufacturers to reduce the cost of vaccines for countries. The UK investment through Gavi will immunise an additional 75 million children against diseases and save over 1.25 million lives.
