Increasing Vaccine Acceptance and Demand in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Sabin partners with health experts, academics and social scientists at the community and global levels to understand the social and behavioral drivers of vaccine acceptance and demand in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). And we translate research into action by supporting journalists and health workers in producing fact-based reporting and advocacy.
Our partnerships deepen health workers’ and journalists’ knowledge, skill sets and connectivity to accurately report and advocate around vaccines and immunization.
Insights Dialogue is a partnership with Bay Area Global Health Alliance designed to share research and evidence on how to best use social media and digital platforms to address vaccine confidence with vaccine program implementers, public health communicators, behavior change scientists and other stakeholders.
Social and Behavioral Research Grants Program
Our Social and Behavioral Research Grants Program funds locally led research to explore cultural, economic and social factors and barriers to vaccination acceptance and demand in low- and middle-income countries.
The Vaccination Acceptance Research Network
We’re uniting multidisciplinary stakeholders from academic research, non-governmental organizations, and the policy, public health and private sectors to advance ground-up solutions that boost vaccine confidence and uptake locally, nationally and globally.
Meeting the Challenge of Vaccination Hesitancy
In June 2020, we published a report by the Sabin-Aspen Vaccine Science & Policy Group which lays out actionable steps that leaders across global health, research, philanthropy and technology can take to build confidence in vaccines and vaccinations.
We make vaccines more accessible, enable innovation and expand immunization across the globe.
