Euro Health Group has been appointed by the UNICEF Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (ECARO), Switzerland, to provide a short-term Institutional consultancy to conceptualize and support implementation of behaviour insights research on drivers influencing immunization-related behaviours in Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The purpose of this research project is to identify key behaviour drivers and inform key stakeholders to better understand behaviour drivers that influence people’s immunization-related choices and practices. The Euro Health Group research team is supporting national partners in its implementation to:
1. Assess factors influencing childhood vaccination uptake (target group: parents/caregivers as decision-makers, and healthcare professionals (family doctors and/or pediatricians and nurses)
2. Assess drivers of COVID-19 vaccination uptake (target group: general population and healthcare professionals (family doctors / general practitioners, specialists and nurses).
The Euro Health Group team will also support the countries in the formulation of actionable and country specific recommendations to consider for increasing demand for childhood and COVID-19 vaccines.
