Vaccination

Globalt sett har vaccinationsprogram upprepade gånger lett till heta debatter.

Med start i Tyskland kommer MULTIPLIERS att titta närmare på flera vaccinationsprogram, t.ex. det mot humant papillomvirus (HPV), som särskilt riktar sig till tonåringar.

Våra studenter kommer att undersöka olika perspektiv, inklusive de två ofta motstridiga målen att skydda folkhälsan och individens autonomi på samma gång. I aktiviteterna ingår att träffa experter och forskare, t.ex. från universitetssjukhuset i Bonn, samla in data och information och diskutera både fördelar och effekter av vaccinationer.
