Return on Investment from Childhood Immunization in Low- and Middle-income Countries, 2011-20

An analysis of return on investment can help policy makers support, optimize, and advocate for the expansion of immunization programs in the world’s poorest countries. We assessed the return on investment associated with achieving projected coverage levels for vaccinations to prevent diseases related to ten antigens in ninety-four low- and middle-income countries during 2011–20, the Decade of Vaccines. We derived these estimates by using costs of vaccines,


Costs and Financing of Routine Immunization: Approach and Selected Findings of a Multi-country Study (EPIC)

This study provides a wealth of high quality information on total and unit costs and financing for routine immunization, and demonstrates the value of in-depth facility approaches. The paper discusses the lessons learned from using a standardized approach, as well as proposes further areas of methodology development. The paper discusses how results can be used for resource mobilization and allocation, improved efficiency of services at the country level, and to inform policies at the global level.

Estimated Economic Impact of Vaccinations in 73 Low- and Middle-income Countries, 2001-2020

Objective: To estimate the economic impact likely to be achieved by efforts to vaccinate against 10 vaccine-preventable diseases between 2001 and 2020 in 73 low- and middle-income countries largely supported by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

Methods: We used health impact models to estimate the economic impact of achieving forecasted coverages for vaccination against Haemophilus influenzae type b,

The Value of Vaccination

With the spread of immunization having stalled in many parts of the world, a wider look at its benefits is timely. In this paper, the authors discuss the value of vaccination from a broad perspective. As well as the health benefits, we examine the cost of vaccine programs and their economic impacts. Vaccination has proved a cost-effective and remarkably efficient way of improving health,
