UNICEF has a significant role within vaccine procurement for children. In recognition of this and to provide greater transparency, UNICEF is now publishing historic, current and future awarded prices for vaccines.
This overview has been prepared following consultations with vaccine suppliers to UNICEF on making pricing information more transparent.
The vaccine prices received by UNICEF from industry are based on the UNICEF mandate, UNICEF aggregated quantities, commercial terms, reliability of forecasts, payment terms and long standing relationship with industry.
Prices posted are based on CPT Incoterms for the period 2001 – 2003 and FCA nearest international airport Incoterms from 2004 and payment terms are 30 days net, unless otherwise specified.
For your reference, historical procurement data per vaccine in terms of quantities in doses and USD values is available here.
Awarded Prices updated as of 10th April 2013
