Results from a survey of national immunization programmes on home-based vaccination record practices in 2013.

Young SL, Gacic-Dobo M, Brown DW - Int Health (2015)

Bottom Line: Two countries were excluded from analysis because they did not use a HBR during 2013.Computed printing cost per record was <US$0.50 in 53/77 (69%) of countries providing information.Much work remains to improve forecasting where appropriate, to prevent HBR stock-outs, to identify and improve sustainable financing options and to explore viable market shaping opportunities.

IHV014F1: Responsibility for financing of home-based vaccination records across partners during 2013. EPI: Expanded Programme on Immunization; HBR: home-based records; MoH: Ministry of Health.Map disclaimer: The boundaries and names shown and the designations used on this map do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of WHO or UNICEF concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries. Dotted lines on maps represent approximate border lines for which there may not yet be full agreement.

Mentions: Results highlight the shared nature of financing of home-based records between government and external partners (Figure 1). The national immunization programme and Ministry of Health (MoH) were cited as solely responsible for financing home-based records in 20 of 135 (14.8%) countries (3 of 138 countries did not respond to the question). Development partners were cited as the sole organization responsible for financing in 12 of 135 (8.8%) countries and shared responsibility with the national programmes or MoH in 31 of 135 (22.9%) countries. Among the remaining 72 respondent countries providing information on financing, other partnership combinations involving the national immunization programme or MoH without development partner involvement were noted in 53 countries. Development partners shared responsibility with the national immunization programme or MoH for financing home-based records in 43% (23/54) of GAVI Alliance-eligible respondent countries (vs 10% [8/84] of non-GAVI Alliance-eligible respondent countries) and in 23% (18/78) of middle- and 43% (12/28) of low-income respondent countries.Figure 1.
