Vaccination coverage across the life course—Global
Immunization coverage for DTPcv-3, MCV-2, PCV3, and HPVc.
Measurement approach: Immunization coverage for a certain year is defined as the proportion of the targeted population that received the relevant vaccine and dose in that year.
Measurement will be determined at the regional and global levels, using WHO and UNICEF estimates of national immunization coverage (WUENIC). Note that for WUENIC, the annually targeted population for globally recommended vaccines comprises the entire global cohort of surviving infants, regardless of whether the vaccine was introduced in their country.
Calculation: Denominator is the estimated population of the target group of children that should receive DTPcv-3, MCV-2, PCV3, and HPVc. The numerator consists of the target population who have received DTPcv-3, MCV-2, PCV3, and HPVc. The target population of children and their appropriate age for receiving the last vaccine dose is determined by national immunization schedules.
