The WHO Department of Immunization Vaccines and Biologicals (IVB) is pleased to announce the upcoming second webinar series on 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. 

Building upon the first webinar series organized in 2023, this second series of webinars, based on the joint WHO, UNICEF and Gavi guidance document Why Gender Matters: IA2030,aims to further improve awareness and understanding of how gender-related barriers impact immunization. The series will focus on examples and best practices of gender-responsive programming to improve coverage and equity from around the world. 

The webinar series will run across 5 sessions, on Thursdays from 15-16h (CET): 7 March, 4April, 9 May, 6 June, 11 July. Additional information available in the poster below.  Sessions will be in English, with simultaneous translation into French.
