Financing Vaccination Programs in Southeast Asia Post-Lab Working Group Session
This working group session is a continuation of the conversation from the previous Milken Institute Financial Innovations Lab, “New Models for Financing Vaccination Programs in Southeast Asia”, held on 29 July 2016 in Jakarta. Participants at the Lab explored barriers in introducing new vaccines in Indonesia, with a specific focus on: 1) the challenges of procurement costs, 2) health worker training, and 3) community acceptance of vaccinations. The financing solutions and a list of participants are available in the downloadable report on “New Models for Financing Vaccination Programs in Southeast Asia”.
To address these barriers, the Lab discussed innovative financing mechanisms, including development impact bonds, conditional cash transfer programs, and pooled procurement funds. Participants proposed a demonstration project that will use these financing solutions to fund the roll-out of the new dengue vaccine in Jakarta.
