The Right Shot: 2015
Bringing down barriers to affordable and adapted vaccines
Immunization is one of the most efficient ways to reduce child mortality. Yet, every year 1 child out of 5 (under the age of 1 year) is not fully vaccinated, putting him/ her at risk of dying of preventable diseases such as measles, pneumonia or diarrhoea.
In the 2nd edition of MSF Access Campaign’s report, The Right Shot, we have gathered more than 1,500 data points from organisations including UNICEF, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), governments, vaccine manufacturers and MSF’s own supply centres to better understand one of the main barriers to immunization: high vaccine prices. The resulting report is one of the most comprehensive publications on comparative vaccines prices to date, bringing together in one place information on 16 key vaccines across 13 countries.
