This indicator measures the proportion of low- and middle-income countries whose share of national vaccine expenditure that is funded by domestic government resources increased or remained stable. It signals whether countries are transitioning away from aid in spending on vaccines by calculating both the change in overall expenditure level on vaccines as well as the change in share of total vaccine expenditure paid from domestic government resources as opposed to external aid.
Each year, an increasing proportion of low- and middle-income countries should observe progress by increasing or remaining stable their share of national vaccine expenditure funded by domestic government resources. Countries should aim to secure more domestic government resources to procure vaccines and the proportion of funds for vaccines coming from domestic budgets should increase over the course of the decade.
