Build awareness, confidence and uptake in COVID-19 vaccines among all eligible Ugandan citizens.
The historic public health crisis resulting from the SARS-CoV-2 (hereafter COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in tremendous mortality and morbidity, as well as unprecedented economic loss and disruption to daily life in Uganda and across the world. Long-term control of the COVID-19 pandemic hinges on the development, distribution, and uptake of vaccines. Although highly effective COVID-19 vaccines have been developed rapidly and a phased plan for national vaccine distribution has been established, ensuring the success of national vaccination efforts requires a communication plan to address vaccine hesitancy and foster confidence. Despite the considerable suffering and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, polls suggest that a sizable proportion of the Ugandan population either does not plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccine or is unsure about receiving a vaccine. To enhance acceptance and trust in COVID-19 vaccines among the diverse populations in Uganda, ZBI designed a 3 C communication model to promote sustainable behavior change.
