Rooted in data, driven by humanity.

Our mission

We provide decision-makers with global vaccine confidence insights to support policy and intervention design, and reduce vaccine inequalities. Our team has conducted research in over 150 countries – almost 80% of the world.

Our goal is to empower individuals and their communities with the knowledge to make informed health decisions for themselves and their families.

What we do

The Vaccine Confidence Project™ (VCP) was established in 2010 by Professor Heidi Larson at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to better understand growing vaccine scepticism around the world.

The VCP was the first research group to map and monitor public confidence in vaccination at a global scale and remains the only research group fully dedicated to understanding the roots, trends over time, and impacts of vaccine confidence.

By listening to early signs of public distrust and providing risk analysis and guidance, we aim to engage early to prevent potential programme disruptions and support vaccination rates.

State of Vaccine Confidence in the EU

In 2018, the European Commission engaged the Vaccine Confidence Project to create the first “State of Vaccine Confidence in the EU” report. Since then, the VCP has conducted bi-annual research to map and monitor public attitudes to vaccines across the region and examine trends over time.

Building Confidence in Routine Immunisation

The UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (UNICEF ECARO) and the VCP worked in partnership to better understand the impact of social media on caregivers’ attitudes, beliefs, trust, immunisation intention and uptake.

Vaccine Confidence Index

Our team has conducted research in over 150 countries from 2015 to the present, helping to identify critical global trends in vaccine confidence with implications for global health.
