Social Science Research Council’s Mercury Project announces Call for Proposals to expand vaccine demand research

The Social Science Research Council announced USD $2 million Call for Proposals to support research projects to rigorously test locally grounded solutions to improve demand for vaccinations across the life course. The funding comes at a critical time when 25 million children missed out on essential vaccines in 2021 – the largest sustained decline in 30 years, according to WHO and UNICEF.
