The State of Vaccine Confidence: 2015

Vaccine confidence is a global phenomenon with deep local roots. A key goal of the Vaccine Confidence Project is to build our understanding of the broader global picture, while also delving deep into local dynamics through case studies, using both qualitative and quantitative methods. Our latest report on The State of Vaccine Confidence summarises this work to date.

The report analyses a number of vaccine confidence issues and the paths to their resolution over the past decade, including polio eradication and beyond. It also presents options for monitoring and measuring public confidence to detect waning confidence early and identify issues of concern, as well as reporting on strategies that have had positive impacts in engaging populations to build trust and confidence.

This report also introduces the Vaccine Confidence Index (VCI) global mapping project, including results from the first five countries surveyed: Nigeria, Pakistan, India, Georgia, and the UK. As the VCI dataset expands, the latest findings from additional countries will be posted here on our website.
