Sabin Vaccine Institute and UNICEF

June 13, 2023
Bangkok, Thailand

Registration is now open for the Sabin Vaccine Institute’s annual Vaccination Acceptance Research Network (VARN) 2023 Conference. The conference will be held on June 13-15, 2023, in Bangkok, Thailand. VARN2023 is co-convened with UNICEF and co-sponsored by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and in support of COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership priority countries. This meeting will be an in-person event with facilitation of virtual presentations as needed.

Conference sessions will provide a space for exploration and facilitate the wide dissemination of a growing body of knowledge, practice, and evidence-informed strategies for driving action across the vaccination acceptance, demand, and delivery ecosystem.

This year’s conference will focus on four key areas:

  • Recovering lost gains in routine childhood immunizations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Building effective adult immunization and life-course vaccination programs
  • Demand generation strategies for routine childhood and adult immunization
  • Social listening to mitigate rumors and misinformation about vaccines and vaccination

VARN2023 will provide simultaneous live audio interpretation in French and English for all sessions.
