On the ChildInfo website, you will find UNICEF's key statistical databases with detailed country-specific information that was used in the end-decade assessment of progress and setbacks in implementing the 1990 World Summit for Children Declaration and Plan of Action. The site contains global and regional summary analyses and graphics of key results, in addition to new and revised data.
WHO-UNICEF Joint Reporting
WHO and UNICEF have jointly developed the Joint Reporting Form (JRF), a standard questionnaire, to collect immunization data at the national level. Every year, national immunization programmes complete the JRF and describe various aspects of their programme, including vaccine schedule, coverage achieved for each of the vaccines, reported disease incidence and variety of other indicators. WHO and UNICEF jointly produce the best estimates of coverage from the data reported in the JRF as well as other sources.
