UNICEF provides a market update for measles-containing vaccines (MCVs) and highlights demand increases that have doubled the originally forecasted volume. 

Increased routine and supplementary immunization activities, emergency outbreak response requirements and the country introductions of measles and rubella combination vaccines (MR) account for this increase.

Supply availability has been sufficient to meet demand, however the overlapping timing of requirements and an 80 per cent supply dependency on one manufacturer requires close partner collaboration and planning.
