Costs of interventions to increase immunisation coverage

Costs of interventions to increase immunisation coverage PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News 804, p12 - 2 Jun 2018 Costs of interventions to increase immunisation coverage A cost function has been developed to support decisions on investments in interventions to increase immunisation coverage, report authors of a systematic review published in Vaccine. Investigators conducted a systematic review of English-language, peer-reviewed studies published in PubMed up to March 2017 which reported the costs and effectiveness of interventions for increasing immunisation coverage.

Abstract

PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News 804, p12 - 2 Jun 2018 Costs of interventions to increase immunisation coverage A cost function has been developed to support decisions on investments in interventions to increase immunisation coverage, report authors of a systematic review published in Vaccine. Investigators conducted a systematic review of English-language, peer-reviewed studies published in PubMed up to March 2017 which reported the costs and effectiveness of interventions for increasing immunisation coverage. Many studies reported the effectiveness of interventions but failed to provide cost data. A total of 42 studies assessing 56 interventions met the inclusion criteria. A cost function was developed to estimate the non- vaccine cost per dose of interventions to increase immunisation coverage by one percent, through campaigns or routine immunisation in low- and high- income countries.
