Who We Are:
The 19 to Zero Story
19 to Zero is a not-for-profit coalition of academics, public health experts, behavioural economists, and creative professionals working to understand, engage with, and ultimately shift public perceptions towards healthier behaviours.
19 to Zero originally launched with a focus on encouraging safer public health behaviours during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, our not-for-profit has continued to build vaccine confidence and help close care gaps across a range of health and disease domains.
19 to Zero is the implementation lead for CONVINCE Canada. A global initiative in partnerships with the City University of New York School of Public Health, the Vaccine Confidence Project at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and Wilton Park, an agency of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office.
As an independent nonprofit organization, 19 to Zero works closely with a broad, multidisciplinary group of partners. These organizations and individuals come from academia, healthcare, the public sector, private companies, and more to provide expertise across the full range of 19 to Zero’s activities. From polling and data analysis to healthcare worker outreach to mass communications and everything in between, this diverse coalition drives the work of 19 to Zero.
Our Funders & Sponsors
19 to Zero is an independent nonprofit that receives in-kind support, financial funding, and grants from a broad multi-sector network.
