After completing this lecture and the associated readings, return to the Diderichsen and Hallqvist framework displayed on slides 6-10 of the lecture. Complete the following steps:

  1. Sketch out the inequalities that lead to (1) ongoing polio transmission in hard to reach populations in Pakistan and Afghanistan OR (2) ongoing transmission of another disease in your own context.

  2. Post the sketch (this may be a photo of a hand drawing, or a PDF file) in Padlet. Include an explanation of how these same inequalities might lead these populations to be more likely to refuse vaccine.
