Encouraging Vaccine Confidence in Canada

Encouraging vaccine confidence in Canada PromoScience grants support organizations with strong track records of science and/or health promotion to deliver evidence-based, vaccine-promoting information to key communities and groups and/or to build capacity in the community to promote confidence in vaccines. Jointly administered by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), it is expected that funded activities will mobilize knowledge to improve public understanding of vaccines and help Canadians to make evidence-based decisions, especially among populations that are hesitant about vaccines. Activities supported by these grants should encourage participants to become discerning consumers of natural sciences and engineering, humanities and social sciences, and health information. Through their proposed activities, organizations should aim to build on existing networks, infrastructures and relationships with Canadian and international partners where possible.
