Estimated Economic Impact of Vaccinations in 73 Low- and Middle-Income Countries, 2001-2020
This article, published in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, discusses the economic benefits of the vaccinations given in low- and middle-income countries supported by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, since Gavi’s establishment in 2001. Disease modeling experts estimated the global impact of immunization based on the latest forecasts of vaccine demand and estimates of disease burden. The authors estimate that, between 2001 and 2020, immunization against 10 vaccine-preventable diseases in 73 low- or middle-income countries will avert almost 20 million child deaths and save US$350 billion in costs of illness.
