V3P Mechanism: Module 1 – Database of vaccine price information

The V3P database has been designed for the collection, collation and dissemination of vaccine price and procurement information mainly for self-procuring Low-Income Countries (LIC) and Middle-Income Countries (MIC) and including information from WHO UNICEF and PAHO.

The database allows users to search and review prices of WHO prequalified vaccines by countries and procurement systems. It provides country specific information on procurement processes with the aim of assisting interested LIC and MIC to make more informed decisions about vaccine procurement.

Participating countries are able to provide their information to this public platform. After validation of data, the information submitted is included in the published database. Automated data collation and output functions allow for customized data analyses.

As much as possible, the database is designed to present data that is comparable between countries. However, due to the complexity of procurement it is possible that not all data will be directly comparable.

Users should therefore use caution when interpreting data and make sure to take into account specific contexts, circumstances and factors affecting prices that apply to individual countries as described in the country information profiles.
