Vaccines and immunization

Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective health interventions available, saving millions of people from illness and death each year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has further  highlighted the importance of vaccines in ensuring equitable health outcomes. Vaccination and immunization rates are impacted by a host of behavioural and cultural factors. Vaccines are only effective if the means and mechanisms are in place to ensure whole populations can be vaccinated. For this, behavioural and cultural insights have a significant role to play.
