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.

IHV014F2: Computed percent difference in reported number of home-based records printed for 2013 and the estimated number of births from the United Nations Population Division. HBR: home-based records.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: The percent difference in reported number of home-based records printed for 2013 and the UNPD estimated number of births for 2013 was <10% in 24 countries and ≥50% in 43 countries (Figure 2). In Africa, the quantity of home-based records printed for 2013 differed from the UNPD estimated birth cohort size for each country in relative terms by more than 50% in 12 of 28 countries (−difference: 5 countries; +difference: 7 countries). Similarly in the Americas, 15 of 23 countries reported home-based record print quantities that differed by 50% or more from the estimated birth cohort size (−difference: 6; +difference: 9). In contrast, 13 of 21 countries in the European region reported home-based record print quantities that differed by <25% from the estimated birth cohort size.Figure 2.
