Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the volume of products/services distributed where the organization will not receive or request payment by either the recipient or a third party for the products/services.
  • For example, a health clinic that provides free vaccines out of their operating budget would use Units/Volume Sold: Free to capture the number of vaccines administered.
  • Organizations selling different types of products/services should consider reporting against each type of different product/service separately.
