I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your contributions and engagement with our Community of Practice, which has now grown to 580 members across the globe.
Our currently revamped website: www.immunizationeconomics.org builds off of the original EPIC (EPI Costing and Financing) studies, and has become an umbrella for collaboration on immunization delivery costing (ICAN); examining the broader social and economic benefits of vaccines (VoVRN); teaching vaccine economics (TVEE); immunization financing resource guide; and other related work on efficiency and service delivery. We have nearly 10,000 visits to the website in the past year and are on track to exceed our target demonstrating the value of this repository and sharing platform.
We would greatly appreciate your feedback and contributions to our growing communal knowledge on the economics and financing of immunization programs in low- and middle-income settings. Let us know how best to serve your needs. Thanks also to the team at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in creatively connecting all of us.
