Sustainable Immunization Financing Fact Sheet

Immunization is among the simplest, most cost-effective investments a nation can make to secure a healthy workforce, safeguard its population against devastating disease outbreaks and propel its economy into the next stage of development. However, national immunization budgets are currently insufficient to sustain the programs and incorporate new and costlier vaccines. The Sabin Vaccine Institute, through its Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Program, works with country governments to secure long-term domestic financing for these programs.
The accomplishments and work of Sabin and its three major programs — Vaccine Advocacy & Education, the Sabin Product Development Partnership (Sabin PDP) and the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases (Global Network) — are highlighted in our 2013 Annual Report.
