Meet our Twin HADEA Project: RISE-VAC

AcToVax4NAM supports and collaborates with the RISE-Vac project that aims to improve the health of prison population in Europe by promoting vaccine literacy, enhancing vaccine offer and increasing vaccine uptake.

Using state-of-the-art methodologies, RISE-Vac will:

  • Gather existing evidence on vaccination strategies and services targeting people in prison and combine it with prospectively collected data on (i) attitudes and vaccine learning among prison population and staff; and (ii) vaccination status and vaccine uptake during incarceration
  • Use a co-creation approach to develop information and training materials tailored to people in prison and staff to increase their vaccine learning
  • Develop and pilot models of vaccination delivery to respond to the needs of prison population, prison settings characteristics and national priorities.
