The Wellcome Global Monitor is the world’s largest study into how people around the world think and feel about science and major health challenges. It surveys over 140,000 people from more than 140 countries.
Right now, there are few insights into global attitudes to science and healthcare. The Wellcome Global Monitor will provide robust evidence on how public attitudes vary across different demographic groups and countries.
This evidence will help us and other foundations, researchers and policy makers around the world to promote debate, and frame proposals for action to improve engagement and trust in science and healthcare.
We hope the results will:
help to improve and increase public engagement with science in countries around the world
help researchers to take account of the social and cultural context of their work
stimulate additional, often deeper and more localised research to increase understanding of public attitudes to science.
The 30-question survey ran throughout 2018 as part of the Gallup World Poll. The process for developing the questionnaire involved:
a literature review
testing the questionnaire in seven countries – India, Thailand, Vietnam, Nigeria, South Africa and Colombia
final piloting of the survey in China, Colombia, Egypt, France, India, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam.
