Scientific publications

RIVER-EU’s research will culminate not only in findings and recommendations for policymakers and practitioners, but also in scientific publications and poster presentations which advance our knowledge of engaging underserved communities, reducing barriers to vaccination, and enhancing vaccine equity. As these publications and posters are released, they will be added to this webpage.
