Building Vaccine Confidence: Global Trends and Practical SolutionsDespite the rapid development of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, resistance to immunization threatens to prolong the arc of the pandemic globally. The drivers of vaccine concern are both vast and population-specific, ranging from misinformation and media manipulation campaigns to historical legacies of medical exploitation among marginalized communities. As such, responses must be intentional, data-driven, and account for the full spectrum of motivations that may prompt resistance to immunizations. Addressing a truly multidisciplinary challenge, efforts to build vaccine confidence require engagement from an array of key stakeholders, including civil society, government officials, academics, and the private sector. On April 8th, HGHI, Ariadne Labs, and Harvard CFAR collaborated to host a timely discussion on the global implications of vaccine concern, sociotechnical drivers of resistance, and strategies for increasing vaccine confidence among the most vulnerable communities.
COVID-19 Crisis in Prisons, Jails, and Detention Centers: Historical Perspective and Global ContextCOVID-19 Crisis in Prisons, Jails, and Detention Centers: Historical Perspective and Global Context is the first event in a new series hosted by the Harvard Global Health Institute in partnership with Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics. This webinar brings together a diverse set of panelists to address the current state of the COVID-19 virus in places of detention and incarceration around the world, and discuss how historical contexts for present-day carceral conditions, like overcrowding, and current practices, such as solitary confinement, have enabled the virus to spread. By critically examining the history of global carceral systems, we aim to highlight how deliberate design has exacerbated harm to this population, reinforcing inequality and discrimination, and thwarting efforts to respond to the virus.
