Video: Immunization Costing Action Network

The Immunization Costing Action Network (ICAN) is a network working to increase the visibility, availability, understanding, and use of immunization delivery cost information. This work is led by ThinkWell, along with partner John Snow Inc. (JSI), with funding support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

We build country capacity around the generation of cost information to ensure program and policy relevance. We also work with countries to improve interpretation and translation of cost information so that it is used in country decision-making processes, and informs routine planning and budgeting. Equipped with relevant and user-friendly cost information, we believe that immunization managers and policymakers will be empowered in fundraising and advocacy efforts and will make better resource allocation decisions, improving the efficiency and equity of immunization programs.
