The Value of Vaccine Programs

To better understand the economic value of vaccines, the Decade of Vaccine Economics (DoVE) project calculated the Return on Investment (ROI) of vaccine programs in 73 low- and middle-income countries. DoVE also estimated the Cost of Illness (COI) for three vaccine-preventable diseases in Bangladesh and Uganda. Finally, in Bangladesh, DoVE measured people’s Willingness to Pay (WTP) to reduce their risk of vaccine-preventable disease.
