Annexes to the guidelines for preparing a Financial Sustainability Plan
Several annexes have been developed and provide additional background materials and technical resources for the development of a Financial Sustainability Plan (FSP).
Annex 1 - Immunization costing, financing and gap analysis tool and guide
This annex is designed to help prepare Sections 3 and 4 of a Financial Sustainability Plan. It includes a Microsoft Excel tool that can be used to estimate the past costs and financing of a National Immunization Programme, and to make projections of future costs, future resources requirements, future financing needs to achieve programme objectives, and analyse the corresponding financing gaps. This tool is accompanied by a comprehensive written guide that provides an overview of important concepts, methodologies and terms needed. It also provides step-by-step instruction on how to use the tool and what data requirements are needed, guidance on how to proceed and analyse the results. This tool can be used to prepare the costing and financing sections of a multi-year plan for immunization.
