This workshop is part of a series that focus on capacity building in applied vaccine economics, cost-effectiveness and finance and is developed by a professional team of seasoned health economists from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, WITS School of Public Health, IIHMR University, Aga Khan University, and Makerere University. The workshop series aims to strengthen skills related to economics and financing of national immunization programs to improve the sustainability of vaccine delivery in low and middle-income countries. This program is designed for professionals and academics who are involved in the planning and implementation of immunization programs and projects. The target participants for this program include government representatives (national, state-level, district-level) engaged with immunization, NiTAG members, GAVI program managers, other policymakers, and academics.
