Intercountry meeting on vaccine procurement for self-procuring countries (central and eastern Europe, Turkey and NIS) : report on a WHO meeting, Copenhagen, Denmark 3-4 September 2002
AbstractDuring the past decade major progress in vaccine procurement has taken place in the countries of central and eastern Europe (CCEE), Turkey and the newly independent states (NIS) using bidding mechanisms opened up in the global market. However, because of changes in the market, the process has become more complex and countries need to adapt. It is in this context that the Intercountry Meeting on Vaccine Procurement for self-procuring countries was held. The main objective of the meeting was to provide participants with detailed information on vaccine procurement processes and to examine various procurement mechanisms to better respond to country needs. Participating countries shared information and experiences and reviewed the process of procurement and existing mechanisms in order to facilitate improvement in future procurement. Recommendations to countries included the adoption of procurement best practices and to study other procurement options in order to improve efficiency, quality and affordability of vaccines
