Definition: Proportion of countries with legislation in place that is supportive of immunization as a public good.
  • Numerator: Number of WHO Member States which reported having a vaccination law or other legislation that is supportive of immunization and commits the government to finance all aspects of the immunization programme at all levels.
  • Denominator: Total number of WHO Member States.
Method of estimation:

Step 1) Calculate the indicator numerator. Count the number of WHO Member States which reported that they had a vaccination law or other legislation that is supportive of immunization and commits the government to finance all aspects of the immunization programme at all levels.

Step 2) Divide the indicator numerator by the total number of WHO Member States.

Limitations: Reported data is subject to numerous limitations. Country may not have submitted the data through the WHO/UNICEF Joint Reporting Form on Immunization (JRF) yet at the time of reporting. For newer indicators added to the JRF, it may take some time for the country to establish a system to be able to report the data.
