COVID Behaviors Dashboard

This interactive dashboard presents data from a global survey of knowledge, attitudes and practices around COVID-19. The dashboard is intended to be used by policymakers, government officials, and public health practitioners at national and sub-national levels to better understand the behavioral drivers behind vaccine uptake, masking, and physical distancing that can prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Vira, the Vax Chatbot

Vira can help health workers or anyone who seeks help fielding questions from family and friends about the COVID-19 vaccines. The chatbot was developed by the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, powered by IBM, and inspired by previous research that showed automated chatbots using AI can effectively communicate credible information and support health behavior changes.
