The Epiconcept solution
Epiconcept provided health authorities with a mapping of public opinion. It was based on an analysis of the debates on social networks, in particular Twitter.
By identifying the pro- or anti-vaccination nature of tweets, it provided a map of the most resistant French regions and provides keys to guide strategies to raise awareness of the usefulness of vaccines.
