Estimating the local burden of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease preventable by vaccination: A rapid assessment tool

The main objective of this tool is to provide a methodology for countries to rapidly assess the burden of Hib disease using as much local data as possible. This document includes information on how to collect data from locally available sources and criteria for judging the quality of that data. It then details two methods for calculating the burden of Hib disease using this data. This tool was designed to allow a rapid assessment of Hib disease burden, requiring approximately 7-10 days to complete.
