Resources for Immunization Advocacy

  1. The Value of Immunization Compendium of Evidence (VoICE): The Value of Immunization Compendium of Evidence (VoICE), found at www.immunizationevidence.org, is a searchable database intended to support immunization, child health and global health advocates by synthesizing evidence about the broader value of vaccines. The compendium contains evidence grouped into themes based on the latest findings about the impact that vaccines, and vaccine-preventable diseases, can have on the health, economic status, societal well-being, equity, and other factors affecting families and nations worldwide. The VoICE team at IVAC works to curate and synthesize evidence from peer-reviewed articles and other high-quality resources to continuously expand the compendium. The VoICE tool contains more than 450 key ideas, data summaries and sources – with more added each week – illustrating the broad value of immunization and toll of vaccine-preventable disease as organized under primary topic areas and more than 25 subtopics.
  2. VIEW-hub: This is an open-access data visualization tool that displays data on vaccine introduction, use, coverage, access, impact, and disease burden for nine vaccines: the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, the rotavirus vaccine, the Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine, the inactivated polio vaccine, the human papillomavirus vaccine, the typhoid vaccine, the measles-containing vaccine (second-dose), the measles-rubella vaccine, and vaccines for COVID-19. The module for COVID-19 also tracks vaccine effectiveness, efficacy, impact, neutralization, and safety studies.
  3. Pneumonia & Diarrhea Progress Reports: For over a decade, this report has provided an analysis of 10 key indicators outlined in the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Pneumonia and Diarrhea (GAPPD) in the 15 countries with the greatest burden of under-five pneumonia and diarrhea deaths in young children.
