The following call for proposals under the EU4Health 2022 Annual Work Programme is closing soon:

EU4H-2022-PJ-5 - ‘Call for proposals to support Member States and other relevant actors to implement relevant results of innovative public health research in relation to vaccination against COVID-19’

The call includes:

  • Mapping public health evidence and research results on COVID-19 large-scale vaccination that could be relevant for uptake;
  • Identifying challenges and assess solutions based on country-specific factors;
  • Developing implementation plans based on the current pandemic context or future health crises;
  • Implementing the pilot activities in volunteering EU countries (e.g. training programmes for health professionals, awareness-raising campaigns to tackle vaccine hesitancy, health preparedness training programmes, infrastructure initiatives, dedicated events for the exchange of good practices, risk communication and community engagement etc.);
