The Measles & Rubella Initiative is a global entity that provides funding and technical support directly to countries to address measles and rubella outbreaks. Through annual funding from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and other supporters the M&RI partners are able to rapidly provide resources to countries experiencing outbreaks for targeted response activities including the purchase of vaccines and operational costs. M&RI has provided technical support to numerous countries working to prevent and stop measles outbreaks. This support is pivotal and sets M&RI and its five founding partners apart, making it all the more unique. In addition to technical support, M&RI Outbreak Response Funds have been provided to five countries (table.)
