„Vac­cines encoun­ters in Nigeria’s Kano State”

Please join the next LSHTM Med­ical Anthro­pol­o­gy Sem­i­nar Series. ​​Dr Yashua Alka­li, Dr Aminu Dukku and Umar Tara­jim will reflect on find­ings of their recent study on vac­ci­na­tion in Kano State, Nigeria.

​In 2019, the World Health Organ­i­sa­tion (WHO) named ‘vac­cine hes­i­tan­cy’ amongst its top glob­al threats. In recent years, and par­tic­u­lar­ly since the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, there has been renewed atten­tion world­wide on the need to build trust in vac­ci­na­tion. Com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment, for exam­ple, has become a key com­po­nent of health agen­cies’ efforts to deliv­er effec­tive vac­ci­na­tion cam­paigns. Sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenges how­ev­er remain, both in under­stand­ing dri­vers of vac­cine con­fi­dence in con­text and in engag­ing com­mu­ni­ties at all stages of the vac­cine deploy­ment process. In this Med­ical Anthro­pol­o­gy Sem­i­nar, researchers from the Child­care and Well­ness Clin­ics will dis­cuss find­ings from their recent study on com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment for vac­ci­na­tion in Kano State, North­ern Nigeria.
