Immunization Financing Indicators

Immunization financing indicators from the WHO-UNICEF Joint Reporting Form

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.

The financing indicators included in the JRF aim to capture the expenditure on routine immunization, the expenditure on vaccines, the percentages financed by government and the existence of national budget lines for the purchase of vaccines and injection supplies. These are key elements of the financial sustainability of immunization programs.

Interactive maps (coming soon)

Individual country data as well as global trends by region can be viewed for each indicator using these interactive maps. Data can be filtered by country, region, year, income level and GAVI eligibility. Country graphs and tables with time trends up to 2013 can be visualized and exported in different formats.

Data by country and region on each indicator can be found in the table below. Data are adjusted by WHO estimates for missing and inconsistent reported values. Global and regional analyses are available from the box to the right.

Financing indicators - FSP and cMYP

A second series of indicators are available from the FSP and cMYP databases for a limited set of low and lower middle income countries. Note that the indicators and data have been calculated in ways that improve cross-country comparisons.
