Type to select a Country
This indicator reports on countries with a national agenda for research on immunization. Research agendas will vary depending on national context and priorities. Some countries may focus on disease burden and implementation/operational research to inform new product implementation, whereas others may have wider-ranging agendas. All national agendas should identify priority research areas that increase the likelihood that the country will achieve its IA2030 targets.
Progress will be measured based on country self-reporting through annual WHO/UNICEF Joint Reporting Form on Immunization (JRF) surveys. Research is defined as activities that span five areas including measuring the magnitude and distribution of a health problem, understanding the diverse causes or the determinants of the problem, identifying and developing solutions or interventions that will help to prevent or mitigate the problem, implementing or delivering solutions through policies and programs and evaluating the impact of these solutions on the magnitude, level and distribution of the problem.
