Mobilizing Social Sciences against Infectious Threats

The goal of our European project Sonar-Global is to build a sustainable international network to strengthen the active participation of the social sciences in the prevention and response to infectious threats, including those posed by antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and vaccine hesitancy. Our activities will foster complementarities and synergies among social scientists and other stakeholders.
