"This is the first facility-based costing study of immunization services conducted in Moldova. Our study provides valuable information on the total economic and unit costs of the National Immunization Program, and identifies factors affecting costs and program performance.  I hope that our study findings will be used in national planning and that they will inform policy discussions in Moldova concerning increased immunization coverage rates, while contributing at the same time to greater efficiency and sustainability for managing the immunization program."

The drivers of facility-based immunization performance and costs. An application to Moldova
“This is the most comprehensive research ever undertaken in Georgia on mental health within populations of internally displaced persons. It describes patterns of health system use in cases of mental health disorders.  We hope the paper will provide a stimulus to addressing the neglected issue of mental health within the conflict–affected populations of Georgia."

Costs of Routine Immunization Services in Moldova: Findings of a Facility-based Costing Study

This article was published in the journal Vaccine. This study reveals that the cost of fully immunizing a child in a middle-income country is much higher than previous estimates showed. Findings will contribute to building a new evidence base  for the development of national and global policies, and will contribute to better planning and management of the national immunization program in Moldova.
