Countries on track to successful transition

What we measure: The percentage of countries in the accelerated transition phase that are on track to transition successfully. A country is on track if:

  • at least 75% of predefined transition activities (such as a having a functional national regulatory agency) have been completed on time;
  • DTP3 coverage has increased over the last three years (if a country has already achieved at least 90% DTP3 coverage, this level should have been sustained for three years); and
  • it is meeting its co-financing obligations and did not default on payments in the previous year.
KPI 3.1


What we measure: Percentage of countries that fulfil their co-financing commitments by the end of the year, or which pay their arrears in full within 12 months.

KPI 3.2

Country investments in routine immunisation

What we measure: Percentage of countries that have increased their investment in routine immunisation per child, relative to 2015. This indicator takes into account every vaccine in a country’s national programme, not just those supported by Gavi. It also includes expenditure on related products, such as injection supplies.

KPI 3.3

Institutional capacity

What we measure: Average score of Gavi-supported countries measured against our criteria for national decision-making, programme management and monitoring. Through this indicator, we assess the performance and effectiveness of bodies that manage immunisation, including the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI), interagency coordinating mechanisms and national immunisation technical advisory groups (NITAGs).

KPI 3.4

Some figures from previous years have been updated due to revisions of historical data.
