Convening our Global Network
We are committed to gathering researchers, decision makers, funders, health workers and other key vaccination stakeholders to advance understanding and solutions for improving vaccination acceptance and demand. After the successful inaugural Vaccination Acceptance Research Network (VARN) in March 2022, we are excited to continue offering a platform to connect at the intersection of social science, immunization delivery, and policy. Learn more about past conferences and upcoming opportunities to participate.
The Sabin Vaccine Institute’s Vaccination Acceptance Research Network (VARN) will be hosting its second annual conference co-convened with UNICEF and co-sponsored by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and in support of COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership priority countries. This meeting will be an in-person event with facilitation of virtual presentations as needed. Conference sessions will provide a space for exploration and facilitate the wide dissemination of a growing body of knowledge, practice, and evidence-informed strategies for driving action across the vaccination acceptance, demand and delivery ecosystem.
“Shaping Global Vaccine Acceptance with Localized Knowledge” was the theme of VARN 2022, which featured presentations from over 40 researchers and global health experts. With over 750 attendees registered from 75 countries, this first annual conference made a splash and demonstrated the value of this unique platform.
