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 2015 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.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Commission joined forces to tackle the issue at the first global vaccination summit. Although many of them live in developing countries with poor access to vaccines, scientists are worried that anti-vaccination campaigners in the developed world are spreading misinformation on social media. So what’s the cure for their scepticism?

Emilie Karafillakis, research fellow for the Vaccine Confidence Project, speaks to France 24 about the rising anti-vaccination sentiment that is rising throughout Europe, especially in France where a recent study revealed 1 in 3 citizens believe vaccines are unsafe.

In this episode of Take as Directed, J. Stephen Morrison speaks with Dr. Heidi Larson on why vaccine confidence is currently in crisis, and how this has fueled outbreaks such as measles and the persistence of polio in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
