Your Dollars Do More with UNICEF

In 2011, UNICEF began publishing the price it paid for every vaccine it buys. The action helped to drive prices down for childhood vaccines.

UNICEF's tremendous reach also gives it a unique ability to negotiate with manufacturers and obtain the lowest possible prices for lifesaving vaccines for children.

Projected cost savings of nearly $500 million on the new rotavirus vaccine, for example, will allow UNICEF to immunize an additional 50 million children by 2015.
