WHO vaccine procurement information

Immunization supply and procurement

The WHO website contains detailed information about vaccine procurement and supply. Specific information about vaccine procurement and related issues can be accessed via the link below:

Procurement of vaccine for public-sector programmes

This WHO manual explains in detail how to practically conduct the public sector procurement of safe and effective vaccines, which requires special expertise and knowledge. The authors of the document have attempted to deliver a step-by-step model for vaccine procurement, including critical background information and basic reference materials of importance to procurement personnel in developing and transitional country programmes.

The document is not up-to-date in all aspects and should be used in combination of more recent and specific information available at the V3P website and other relevant international and country sources.
