Recent vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks globally have highlighted the need to better understand what the public think, feel and do about vaccination. What is the relative contribution of diminished confidence in vaccines towards disease outbreaks? How can government and health professionals better engage with parents?
International experts in psychology, anthropology and communication sciences come together in this half-day symposium to describe current trends in public attitudes toward childhood vaccination. They will share their innovative approaches to risk communication and public engagement.
Join us at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on 26 June 2013.
