PATH Brief: Economic Implications of Switching Rotavirus Vaccine Products in Palestine’s Immunization Program

The Palestinian Ministry of Health (MOH) introduced the rotavirus vaccine ROTARIX® in its routine immunization program in 2016. Two years later, the MOH decided to switch to ROTAVAC®, a rotavirus vaccine made in India. Given the lower price of ROTAVAC, such a move might seem like a clear choice. In reality, the overall cost of vaccination programs is influenced by a variety of vaccine characteristics,

Assessing the Incremental Costs and Savings of Introducing Electronic Immunization Registries and Stock Management Systems: Evidence from the Better Immunization Data Initiative in Tanzania and Zambia

Introduction: poor data quality and use have been identified as key challenges that negatively impact immunization programs in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In addition, many LMICs have a shortage of health personnel, and staff available have demanding workloads across several health programs. In order to address these challenges, the Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative introduced a comprehensive suite of interventions,

New Evidence Shows Investments in Vaccination Produce Even Greater Returns than Previously Thought

This article originally appeared on Gavi’s website.  The Decade of Vaccine Economics (DoVE) Project, carried out by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC) for nearly ten years, has computed the return-on-investment for vaccines preventing ten infectious diseases in 94 low- and middle-income countries, including 73 countries that have received support from … Continued

Return On Investment From Immunization Against 10 Pathogens In 94 Low- And Middle-Income Countries, 2011–30

ABSTRACT

Estimating the value of global investment in immunization programs is critical to helping decision makers plan and mobilize immunization programs and allocate resources required to realize their full benefits. We estimated economic benefits using cost-of-illness and value-of-a-statistical-life approaches and combined this estimation with immunization program costs to derive the return on investment from immunization programs against ten pathogens for ninety-four low- and middle-income countries for the period 2011–30.

Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC)

The Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC) is the most comprehensive, current, and standardized global evidence on the cost of delivering vaccines. In January 2017 and again in April 2018 and December 2019, ThinkWell completed a systematic review of the current evidence base on immunization delivery costs (IDC)*. The IDCC was built to answer a question frequently asked by national and global immunization stakeholders: “What are the unit costs of vaccine delivery across different LMICs and through a variety of delivery strategies?”
