Co-hosts Vince Blaser and Francesca Montalto are joined in New York City on the sidelines of the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) by Dr. Anant Bhan, mentor and principal investigator for Sangath in Bhopal, India, and Dr. Kate Hopkins, Director of Research, Vaccine Acceptance & Demand at Sabin Vaccine Institute. Anant and Kate reflect upon their take-aways from discussions with global health leaders during UNGA, community-based participatory initiatives as a long-term strategy for boosting vaccine confidence, and the role of influencers in fostering trust. They explore other factors influencing vaccine acceptance, such as historical mistrust around facility-based vaccination by marginalized communities, including people living with disabilities and transgender individuals).
