This programme invites UK and US-based researchers at any career stage, and active in any discipline within the humanities and social sciences, to submit proposals focused on UK-US vaccine engagement, including examples of community confidence and hesitancy.
COVID-19 is the most challenging health crisis we have faced for decades. Its impacts are changing lives, communities and economies, however, these challenges are not new. There are lessons we can learn from history and recent experience, such as the response to Ebola in recent years and research on other global vaccine campaigns like polio. Evidence from the social sciences and humanities is critical to our recovery and how we can shape a positive future.
