Webinar: Measuring inequity in vaccination coverage & cost-of-illness: an introduction to the VERSE toolkit

Part of the fall 2021 inaugural webinar series of the Immunization Economics SIG that focuses on current research relevant to the immunization economics community of practice.

Following a call from the World Health Organization in 2017 for a dashboard to monitor immunization coverage equity in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the VERSE project lays out a new methodology and user-friendly toolkit for measuring and tracking multidimensional vaccine-related equity in coverage, economic impact, and health outcomes. This work builds upon existing equity methods and toolkits by expanding the outcomes assessed and providing a method for aggregation across multiple dimensions of inequity including socio-economic, gender-based, and regional to create a composite equity metric that is trackable over time and comparable between settings. This presentation will highlight the VERSE project methods and some of the case-study applications that are ongoing in our partner countries.
