About the EVIA Programme

The EVIA programme, the latest instalment in The Office of Health Economics educational series, builds the capacity and confidence of subSaharan African policymakers and immunisation managers:

  • To assess the costs, consequences and value for money of vaccines through economic evaluation
  • To make evidencebased decisions around national immunisation programmes

Throughout our sixpart programme delegates gain a solid foundational understanding of why evidencebased decisionmaking about vaccination programmes is important and their scope for improving current vaccination processes. From here, we build the knowledge and skillsets needed by policymakers and immunization managers to facilitate these improvements.

This course is tailored to a SubSaharan African audience, drawing on local examples and highlighting current policy issues in the region. However, the course content is also applicable to policymakers and programme managers from other countries who implement the Expanded Programme on Immunisation.

The OHE EVIA Programme is supported by an Educational Grant from Pfizer Laboratories Ltd. The programme is for educational purposes only, does not endorse or promote any specific pharmaceutical organisation, drug or other medical intervention, and has been developed, created, and delivered by OHE independently of Pfizer.
