HOW YOU CAN USE THIS MATERIAL:
Field researchers, country practitioners, and other stakeholders can use these materials to estimate the costs of different immunization campaigns and inform more accurate financial planning, budgeting, and resource mobilization.
The Immunization Costing Action Network (ICAN) has developed methodological guidance to improve evidence generation on what it costs to conduct an immunization campaign, to help standardize immunization campaign costing methods and ultimately lead to more accurate financial planning and successful campaigns. The methodological guide complements the literature on costing studies with specific methodological considerations for immunization campaigns, clear instructions fitting potential scenarios, and concrete examples. The main guide is accompanied by supplementary materials for more tips on data collection, practical examples, and tools, and can be used by field researchers, country practitioners, and academics worldwide.
