Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) Vaccine

UNICEF provides a revised supply and demand update for Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine. It highlights that the supply availability outlook for 2016-2018 is sufficient to meet all country requirements, and that a new WHO pre-qualified vaccine is now available.  There are significant price increases for the coming years, following necessary production and quality investments by several manufacturers.  Countries will need to review and make adjustments as necessary to future vaccine budgets.
