"Addressing vaccine hesitancy within a country and/or subgroup requires an understanding of the magnitude and setting of the problem, diagnosis of the root causes, tailored evidence-based strategies to address the causes, monitoring and evaluation to determine the impact of the intervention and whether vaccine acceptance has improved, and ongoing monitoring for possible recurrence of the problem.

When addressing vaccine hesitancy, it must be noted that there are many determinants of vaccine hesitancy. WHO grouped these determinants into contextual, individual and group influences and vaccine/vaccination specific issues. (See Table 1) Countries need to adequately assess which
underlying determinant(s) is the factor driving vaccine hesitancy in their setting." - Summary WHO SAGE Conclusions and Recommendations on Vaccine Hesitancy
