CORE Group’s Disability Inclusive Health TAG Co-Chairs will host a workshop to identify key action steps to build a roadmap for disability-inclusive COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
Featuring stakeholders from select countries, this webinar will focus on local approaches to COVID-19 vaccine access and acceptance among hard-to-reach indigenous populations and refugees. It is organized by UNHCR, IFRC, UNICEF, IOM, and the READY Initiative as part of an RCCE Collective Service webinar series. The webinar is designed around the launch of the Risk […]
After the rapid development of the COVID-19 vaccines and subsequent rollout, there has been an infodemic of misinformation circulating about COVID-19 vaccine safety and efficacy, reducing public trust in getting vaccinated. The challenges and solutions to address them vary from country to country.
Panelists for this episode will share lessons learned in Uganda and Kenya about promoting the acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines: what they and their organizations are doing to promote vaccine confidence, what is working, and what could work. The panel will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.
Join us on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022, 5pm-6pm CEST / 11am-12pm ET!
As we enter a third year of COVID-19, join us for an expert panel discussion and moderated Q&A where we will candidly address where we are at in the fight against COVID-19 and what it will take to end the crisis phase of this pandemic this year.
The dissemination of false information, either without deliberate intent (misinformation) or with malicious intention (disinformation), is a growing global issue which can lead to harmful consequences in public discourse. Behavioural science can be applied to combat misinformation by encouraging users to verify the information and sources and discouraging misinformation sharing.
To highlight the potential of Behavioural Science to Combat Mis- and Disinformation, the UN Behavioural Science Group is hosting a public event on Tuesday, 18th January 2022 at 9am ET.
Join us for this webinar where we will hear about an initiative by medical students at Harvard University to create a COVID-19 curriculum, and how students at Imperial College London worked with local schools and communities to address health priorities and local challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Wednesday, March 23, Save the Children would like to invite you to the virtual launch of Nepal ‘Little Jab Book’ - a first-of-its-kind playbook based on behavioral insights highlighting six common barriers to COVID-19 vaccine uptake and confidence. Key findings from the research conducted by Save the Children, Busara and Common Threads on vaccine confidence in Madhesh Pradesh will also be presented during the launch event.
Join us on April 26, at 9:30 AM EDT as we discuss descriptive statistics from different regions of the globe, present research findings looking at non-pharmaceutical COVID-19 interventions and their impact on wellness and present an established mental health approach that could be utilized by program implementers.
Join us on June 21. Human-centred design for tailoring immunization programmes (HCD-TIP) is a new tool that can be used by all immunization professionals to diagnose barriers to vaccine uptake and co-design solutions that meet community needs. This step-by-step, practical guide created by WHO and UNICEF includes adaptable templates and tools to help you get started quickly and easily. The Behavioral Science Network has been sharing each step of this guide online this week.
Join us from June 22 to June 23. There remains an urgent need to accelerate COVID-19 vaccine uptake in low-income countries. Only 58 countries have met the WHO target of 70% vaccination coverage for COVID-19, the majority of which are high income countries. Low-income countries have meanwhile only vaccinated slightly over 10% of their populations. Accelerating COVID-19 vaccine uptake while continuing to promote routine immunization and primary health care necessitates continued political leadership and the prioritized implementation of demand-related and Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) interventions.
This virtual event will convene policymakers, demand promotion and RCCE practitioners, researchers, and stakeholders to highlight examples of proven policy, vaccine demand, and RCCE interventions.
