Immunization financing indicators

Updated: January 2012

Immunization financing indicators from the WHO-UNICEF Joint Reporting From

Since 1998, the WHO and UNICEF Joint Reporting Form mechanism has been collecting data on immunization financing indicators as part of a set of immunization indicators designed to measure system performance and trends in WHO Member States.

WHO periodically carries out global and regional analysis on the following indicators:

  • Is there a line item in the national budget for the purchase of vaccines used in routine immunization? (Yes-No)
  • Is there a line item in the national budget for the purchase of injection supplies used in routine immunization? (Yes-No)
  • What percentage of all spending on vaccines was financed using government funds? (%)
  • What percentage of all spending on routine immunization was financed using government funds? (%)

Global and regional analysis are available for download from the box on the right side.

Updated figures and tables are available below based on the data collected in 2011 for the year 2010.
