Informing Vaccine Decision Making with Economic Evidence

6 April 2016

The HPID Center organized a training workshop to support NITAGs in understanding the role of economic evidence in the development of immunization recommendations. The workshop, which took place in Abidjan on March 29th and 30th, gathered the CNEIV-CI and its secretariat, the NITAG of Cote d’Ivoire, and representatives from the NITAGs of Benin, Burkina Faso, and Senegal.

This “on demand” training is now part of the training catalogue. Building on the other trainings offered to NITAGs, it focuses on the integration of relevant economic aspects in the recommendation framework, the principles of economic analyses, and the interpretation of results in light of decision making. NITAGs should include economic aspects for consideration in developing recommendations and this training surely help grasp the  methodology.

    new Interim Recommendations on Vaccination against Ebola Virus Disease from SAGE


    Over the last four weeks, the Ebola outbreak in the Eastern Provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has deteriorated with a large increase in the number of cases1. A major factor in this rise is an increase in critical security incidents that have dramatically affected the ability to identify, follow up and vaccinate contacts successfully. This context challenges the implementation of ring vaccination based on the identification of contacts and contacts of contacts, as recommended by SAGE in April 2017 and confirmed by SAGE during its April 2019 meeting. Further, a potential vaccine shortage may manifest in case the outbreak expands further and/or is prolonged.
