Update: J-PAL South Asia regrets to inform you that due to unavoidable circumstances this event has been canceled. Please follow us on Twitter for updates and information on upcoming events.

J-PAL South Asia’s next Covid Dialogues webinar will delve into how governments can effectively communicate Covid-19 prevention behaviors and drive vaccine uptake. Speakers will also share lessons to inform Covid-19 vaccine uptake in India, drawing on rigorous research and implementation experience in increasing routine immunization.

Covid-19 has infected millions of people worldwide and cases in India alone stand close to 10 million as of December 2020. In the absence of a cure, prevention is essential. With multiple candidate vaccines that show promise, mass distribution, vaccine chain-management, and ensuring adoption will be the next crucial steps that governments will be tackling.

This event is part of J-PAL's Covid Dialogues series, which features insights from researchers and policymakers on how to respond with evidence to the Covid-19 pandemic’s most critical policy questions.
