LNCT Materials to Help you Make the Case for Investing in Immunization

Why We Need to Make a Case for Investment

Maintaining a high performing immunization program requires sustained commitment and funding over time.  Ongoing communication and advocacy are needed to maintain investments and to stimulate additional investments to achieve health goals. Advocating for resources for immunization at national and sub-national levels requires demonstrating the health and economic impact of proposed investments to convince decision makers to allocate funding for immunization.

LNCT created the PowerPoint presentations below to enable immunization practitioners to make their best case for investing in immunization by drawing on the most up-to-date evidence available.

How to Communicate Investment Needs Effectively

  • Keep it simple: avoid being overly technical
  • Be relevant: speak to current issues and motivators for your stakeholders
  • Cite evidence: use facts, data, and graphs
  • Elicit emotion: tailor messaging around children and future generations
  • Create incentives: show how stakeholders can benefit from investing in immunization
  • Explain threats and risks: messaging around consequences of inaction
