Policy makers in low and middle-income countries regularly apply economic principles to healthcare decision-making. To do this well requires greater expertise in applied health economics. The Teaching Vaccine Economics Everywhere focuses on capacity building in applied vaccine economics, cost-effectiveness and finance.
A professional team of health economists from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, WITS School of Public Health, Indian Institute of Hospital Management Research (IIHMR) University, Aga Khan University, Mahidol University, University of Ouagadougou and Makerere University have developed a series of customized training workshops to strengthen skills related to economics and financing of national immunization programs and to improve the sustainability of vaccine delivery in low and middle-income countries.
Course material will be delivered to participants through ongoing training opportunities at workshops, online, and at related health economics and vaccine conferences. Our regional hubs are located in Uganda, South Africa, Burkina Faso, Thailand, India, and Pakistan. Various training workshops are being organized in these countries during the next two years and bring trainees from around those regions. Some trainees will be offered scholarships for travel and logging expenses.
To sustain the impact of the trainings, TVEE has created a global network of professionals who apply economic principles to vaccine policymaking.
