Immunization Financing: A Resource Guide for Advocates, Policymakers, and Program Managers

A Resource Guide for Advocates, Policymakers, and Program Managers

This resource guide contains brief documents discussing financing sources, costs, decision-making processes, and country case studies for immunization programs in low- and middle-income countries.

This resource guide collects 26 brief documents on topics related to the cost and financing of national immunization programs in low- and middle-income countries. Some of the briefs explore possible financing sources. Others examine the components and drivers of immunization costs, planning and decision-making processes related to immunization programs and budgets, and the relationship between immunization and broader health system financing. The resource guide concludes with a set of country case studies that illustrate particular approaches or important challenges.

An interactive, web-based version of the resource guide is also available here in English, French, Spanish, and Russian.
