Type to select a Country
IA2030 aims to encourage strong political commitment for immunization at all levels. Vaccination laws or other legislation reported by countries as part of this indicator could include written laws or regulations, orders, or decrees established by public authorities and enforceable by law. Relevant legislation may be specialized for immunization or contained in other general public health legislation. Policies must consider securing financing for immunization programmes at all levels, including the purchase and timely availability of vaccines in accordance with national planning, training, supervision, outreach activities, and information systems.
Prior to 2021, there was no global effort to track the presence of laws underlying a commitment to provide government-funded immunization to populations. From 2021 onward, advocates hope to see an increase in the proportion of countries reporting on the presence of vaccine commitment laws.
