Model estimates project the number of lives that will be saved from 2021-2023 by achieving IA2030's aspirational coverage targets for WHO-recommended vaccines. Estimates are included for global and regional deaths prevented through the administration of vaccines against 14 diseases. A mid-decade update will add deaths averted by vaccines against a dozen more diseases, including COVID-19, to the projections.
The target is to reach 50 million total deaths averted during 2021-2023. A 2019 baseline was estimated at 4.2 million deaths averted in that year. This indicator will be on track toward the 2030 target if on average 5 million deaths are averted each year.
Number of future deaths averted through immunization—Global
If target is reached, 50 million total future deaths will be averted during 2021-2030 and an average of 5 million deaths will be averted each year.
2021-2030: Hepatitis B, Hib, HPV, JE, measles, MenA, Streptococcus pneumoniae, rotavirus, rubella, yellow fever, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, TB (BCG)
By 2025: Polio, typhoid, influenza, cholera, multivalent meningitis, COVID-19, varicella, dengue, mumps, rabies, hepatitis A, hepatitis E, and other new vaccines.
