Vaccine Product, Price and Procurement (V3P) Mechanism

The V3P Mechanism

The V3P Mechanism is a comprehensive platform providing information on vaccine product, price and procurement data and related issues for WHO prequalified vaccines.

With an expected launch in early 2014, the Mechanism is designed to provide reliable, accurate and neutral information on vaccine product, price and procurement data mainly for self-procuring Low-Income and Middle-Income Countries, allowing for increased price transparency and more informed decision making in the vaccine implementation and procurement processes.

Information categories

The platform consists of three modules. Module 1 (the V3P database) contains information on vaccine prices and procurement modalities provided by participating countries and Partners, including PAHO Revolving Fund and UNICEF. Module 2 contains documents produced by and for the V3P mechanism, including user guidelines and information material on vaccine prices. Module 3 is a web portal, listing links to websites of organizations and sources which provide additional pertinent information on vaccine related issues.
