Definition: Proportion of countries with an immunization agenda.
  • Numerator: Number of WHO Member States which reported having a national agenda for research on immunization.
  • Denominator: Total number of WHO Member States.
Method of estimation:

Step 1) Count the number of WHO Member States which reported that, in the previous year, they had a national agenda for research on immunization.

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.

Among countries that indicated having a national agenda for research on immunization, some may not have provided supporting document that provides evidence of a national agenda for research on immunization, or a progress towards one.
