Diversity Impact on Vaccine Equity (DIVE) in Sri Lanka: November 2021

Covid-19 has shed light on ongoing disparities in vaccine access and confidence among different ethnic groups worldwide. Verité Research conducted a study to analyse social media content shared on Covid-19 vaccine confidence, uptake, and access among three ethnic groups in Sri Lanka—Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims.

This study was financially supported by Minority Rights Group International. The purpose of the study was to identify how social media can be used to understand the degree of vaccine confidence and uptake among different ethnic groups, and their access to vaccines.
