Vaccine Economics Research for Sustainability and Equity (VERSE)

As low- and middle-income countries expand domestic investment in vaccines, data on the economic value of these investments can help decision-makers compare the benefits of vaccination with other health and non-health investments. These data can also provide advocates with rigorous evidence to demonstrate the impact of vaccines in terms that are comparable with other sectors. Additionally, it is crucial to understand inequities in access and coverage and how inequitable vaccine coverage may impede full realization of the benefits of vaccines at the national level.
