Between 2019 and 2021 the number of children that missed out on all routine vaccines, so-called zero-dose children, increased by 3.2 million. To address these equity gaps, identifying efficiencies and exploring innovative delivery modalities to optimize resource allocation is more important than ever. However, economic evidence to support decisionmakers in this is lacking.
ThinkWell is currently seeking to select three countries to form a Zero-Dose Economics Hub and welcomes expressions of interest (EOI) from interested research institutes based in low and middle-income countries to participate in the Hub. Hub members will generate critical economic evidence on reaching zero-dose children, and strengthen their capacity to conduct such economic analyses.
The deadline for applications is 31st January 2023. For more information on the EOI request, the requirements, and how to apply, please visit: https://immunizationeconomics.org/recent-activity/2022/12/20/request-for-expressions-of-interest-zero-dose-economics-hub
