Immunization expenditure from domestic resources

What Does this Indicator Measure?

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.

How Will Progress be Measured?

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.

Definition: Proportion of countries* whose share of current expenditure on vaccines (in the national immunization schedule) financed with domestic government funds increased since pre-2020 level. (*Note that data were only available for 35 low- and middle-income countries for the current analysis)
Measurement approach: To monitor growth, proposed methodology is to compare shares of Yt with Yt-1. The total value of vaccines used for the provision of immunization. All the materials and services are to be fully consumed during the production activity period. Domestic public resources spent on all vaccines used in conformity with the national immunization programme, including routine doses of vaccines, and following each country’s vaccination schedule. Includes the international market price, as well as transport and handling expenditures. Vaccines used in Child Health Days are included in routine vaccine expenditures, but expenditures related to doses of vaccine given through supplemental immunization activities (SIAs) are excluded.
Calculation: The share is calculated from domestic government spending on vaccines as a % of total expenditure on routine immunization vaccines. The trend calculation will be defined subsequently, leveraging methodologies used for WHO GHED and GHER (Global Health Expenditure Report).
