2018 is a resource for organizations and individuals involved in the field of immunization economics. The site was originally created in 2015 as part of the EPIC project with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and has key collaborators from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, ThinkWell, and Results for Development. has three central aims: (1) To create a global community of practice consisting of experts in the field of immunization economics and policymakers interested in evidence-based immunization policy; (2) To keep the community of practice up to date with the latest developments in research on immunization value, costing, financing, and efficiency via our web platform and newsletters; (3) To encourage collaboration on projects that generate rigorous new evidence in immunization economics, and on projects to identify best practices in associated research methodologies and policy implementation.

Resources available through the web portal include a filterable publications (lectures, articles, reports and whitepapers) on immunication economics topics and a data repository of data from EPIC Phase I and II studies, including original data from 6 countries, country reporst on immunization costs and financial flows, and pooled data on routine immunization delivery.
