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?”

ProVac Toolkit: Providing Tools to Support Vaccine Decision Making at Country-level

PAHO’s ProVac Initiative helps national immunization programs managers and policymakers make more robust, evidence based decisions. Since 2004, the ProVac Initiative and its collaborators have trained hundreds of people at ministries of health in the Americas and elsewhere on the development and use of vaccine impact, cost and cost-effectiveness data to inform decision making. More than 30 countries have received direct technical assistance to conduct cost or cost-effectiveness analyses on immunization programs from the Initiative.

Papillomavirus Rapid Interface for Modelling and Economics (PRIME) Tool

The spreadsheet-based PRIME tool is intended for in-country analysts (not necessarily economists) who are advising national governments on HPV vaccine introduction.

PRIME is designed to give users an idea of:

    • The magnitude of the burden of cervical cancer
    • The impact of introducing HPV vaccination for girls prior to sexual debut
    • Healthcare costs incurred as a result of cervical cancer treatment
    • Costs associated with vaccination
    • Long-term savings which may result from a vaccination program

The tool is intended for use by non-modeller users such as country program managers and planners and decision makers in low- and middle income countries.
