The study teams collected and analyzed immunization costing and financing data from six countries. Results were then disseminated to the public and community of practice.
Using the pooled dataset from six countries, we analyzed the immunization program cost drivers, marginal cost of scaling up, variation in productive efficiency, and tradeoffs associated with different costing extrapolation methods. Articles coming soon.
Information on financial flows from external, government, and other domestic sources are documented and quantified as input for policy dialogue on sustainability and co-financing of new vaccines. Download: Instrument | Resource map coming soon.
We reviewed the EPIC study methods and implementation and document lessons learned to inform future approaches to carrying out similar multisite costing studies and improve routine immunization data collection and delivery. Enhancing program performance, a Zambian Case Study | Sampling guide coming soon.
Results of our findings are disseminated in national and international meetings and workshops, focused on developing capacity for cost-efficiency and quality performance measurements. Download reports: 2016 Immunization Costing Workshop
COMMUNITY & RESOURCE
We create a public web-based data resource to provide other researchers access to the data from the EPIC studies and support a community of practice around immunization costing and financial flow analysis. Join us now!
