  2. WHO social media project: exploratory phase Background Social media is playing an increasingly significant role in information dissemination and in the formation and expression of public opinion and concerns related to immunization and thus have the power to both damage and support immunization programmes. National immunization programmes would like to explore the opportunities and potential pitfalls of actively engaging in social media, including the options to optimize the considerable potential of this effort and the resources and best practice process steps needed for this work. Monitoring of social media is another activity offering potentially a rich source of information that may guide programme planning. Lastly, with anti-vaccination voices being vocal in many Member States and effectively using social media in their effort to gain influence on people’s vaccination decisions, immunization programme managers are seeking ways to counteract this, if at all possible. See attached notice. Concept note(1).pdf

Contractual Arrangement: External Consultant Contract duration: Short term consultancies Job Posting: Apr 4, 2017, 4:29:31 PM Closing Date: Apr 25, 2017, 11:59:00 PM Primary Location: Denmark-Copenhagen Organization: EU/DCH Communicable Diseases and Health Security PURPOSE OF THE POSITION Sub-optimal routine vaccination coverage and continuing disease outbreaks in countries in the WHO European Region demonstrate a need for community insights to understand barriers and drivers to vaccination and for effective community and social interventions to increase vaccination uptake. To support Member States gain community insights, develop strategies for social interventions, close immunization gaps and equitably extend the benefits of vaccination, WHO Regional Office for Europe (WHO/Europe) in 2013 developed the TIP (Tailoring Immunization Programmes) behavioural insights tool and approach. The TIP approach was used by Member States for pilot projects during 2014-2016 and evaluated in 2016 by an external evaluation committee. Building on lessons learned from the application of TIP, a range of Member States are now seeking WHO support to apply the same approach to reach sub-optimally vaccinated population groups. WHO is seeking consultants to support Member States in applying the TIP methodology; conducting social science research to gain community insights; and developing tailored strategies for social and community interventions to increase vaccination uptake.
