The process of introducing vaccines varies from country to country and involves the influence of many stakeholders - ministries of health and finance, international agencies such as the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO), Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs), community leaders, experts on disease, and funders, to name just some of the players. Defining roles, decision rights, and data requirements for this constellation of participants is difficult. The resulting confusion slows decision making and compounds chronic problems, such as poor infrastructure and limited public-health budgets.
