The WHO Department of Immunization Vaccines and Biologicals (IVB) is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar series Why Gender Matters for Immunization: IA2030.
The Immunization Agenda 2030 envisions a world where everyone, everywhere, at every age, fully benefits from vaccines to improve health and well-being. Gender-related barriers and gender inequality can prevent people, both male and female, from getting vaccinated. The goal of gender equality is to ensure that everyone has the same chances and opportunities to access and benefit from immunization services.
This webinar series, based on the joint WHO, UNICEF, and Gavi guidance document Why Gender Matters: IA2030, aims to improve awareness and understanding of how gender-related barriers impact immunization and to showcase examples of gender-responsive programming to improve coverage and equity. Through practical examples and best practices from around the world, the series will highlight practical tools and methods to integrate a gender perspective into immunization programmes.
The webinar series will run across 5 sessions, on Thursdays from 15-16h (CEST): 8 June, 22 June, 6 July, 13 July, 20 July. Additional information available in the poster attached.
Sessions will be in English, with simultaneous translation into French.
