  • Workshop – Communicating the science and building common grounds with minorities

    5 April 2023 from 13:00 – 16:00 UTC – LIMITED TO 25 PARTICIPANTS
    The Covid-19 pandemic exposed a lot of blind spots in the communication of science to minorities that led to missed opportunities for collaboration. Now we can hopefully learn from what we missed for future health communication. This workshop will present multiple perspectives on inequity towards minorities, across countries and stakeholders’ interests, when it comes to health communications and interventions such as vaccinations. We will investigate how we can effectively communicate the science with openness and inclusiveness (campaigns, compliance guidelines, vaccinations) to build common grounds with minority populations and promote public health.
