The Convening Meeting on Immunization Delivery Costs took place on October 14-15, 2015 and brought together experts and policy makers to review and discuss the current evidence on immunization delivery costs across a range of delivery strategies and platforms, vaccines, and age groups. The main aim of the meeting was to collectively identify essential information needs, methodological issues, gaps in use of data for policy and at the country level, as well as priorities and actions needed to support a common understanding of the direction of future efforts in this field.
This work is led by DCP3 senior health economist Dr. Carol Levin, at the University of Washington's Department of Global Health, and a consortium of experts in global immunization costing. This consortium aims to build consensus on how best to systematically imprive immunizaton service delivery costs for donors, national governments, and multilaterial agencies to advance vaccine development and health policies and programs aimed at reducing vaccine preventable diseases among child, adolescents, and adult populations.
