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. 

 

DATA COLLECTION

EPIC studies follow a common approach notable for the rigor in sample design, comprehensiveness of resource use and productive efficiency measurement, and comparability across settings. Download: Common approach | Questionnaire

COUNTRY REPORTS

Final reports from the studies on Costing and Financing of Routine Immunization and New Vaccines (EPIC) is available for download. Download: BEN | GHA | UGA | ZAM | HON | MOL

 

 

POOLED ANALYSIS

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. 

RESOURCE TRACKING

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.

 

LESSONS LEARNED

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 StudySampling guide coming soon.

DISSEMINATION

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!
