Financing indicators and databases

Databases

Data on immunization financing can be retrieved through 2 separate databases:

The cMYP immunization financing database

Populated with country level data generated through the multi-year immunization plans (cMYP)

The JRF immunization financing indicators database

Populated with country level data generated through the WHO-UNICEF joint annual monitoring system

Indicators

Indicators on immunization financing are available from 3 separate sources of information: WHO and UNICEF Joint Reporting Form (JRF); Financial Sustainability Plans (FSP) and comprehensive Multi-Year Plans (cMYP).

A first series of indicators are available from the WHO-UNICEF annual monitoring system for all member states. Since 1998, the WHO and UNICEF Joint Reporting Form (JRF) 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.

A second series of indicators are available from the FSP and cMYP immunization financing database for a limited set of low and lower middle income countries. The following tables summarizes the key immunization financing indicators available. Note that the indicators and data have been calculated in ways that improve cross-country comparisons.
