1. Gender and Routine Immunization, Wednesday 14h (2pm) September 23 Geneva time

Growing evidence points to the multiple ways in which gender influences risks, access to health services & ultimately health outcomes, including for immunization. To increase immunization coverage for children and people at different ages and leave no one behind, it is critical to understand and address the ways in which gender interacts with additional social determinants such as age, race, ethnicity, socio-economic background, migration status, gender identity & disability to create barriers to immunization. Applying a gender lens to immunization programming, therefore, goes beyond focusing on gender discrepancies in immunization coverage among girls and boys.

The session will introduce the importance of gender in health & health programming and highlight how immunization interventions can expand coverage and widen reach by understanding and systematically analyzing & addressing gender roles, norms and relations as part of immunization service planning & delivery. Participants will have an opportunity to pose questions and share their perspectives and experiences.

2. Strategies for catch-up vaccination in the context of COVID-19, Wednesday 14h (2pm) September 30 Geneva time


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges for health systems and in some places has led to disruptions in routine immunization service delivery & decreases in vaccination coverage. As programmes work hard to restore and maintain immunization services, it is important that strategies & mechanisms are in place to enable individuals who have missed their vaccinations, for any reason, to be identified and vaccinated as quickly as possible.

The session discusses the importance of continuously implementing catch-up vaccination as an integral component of routine immunization, as well as intensified strategies to close immunization gaps following a disruption in immunization services, as described in new WHO guidance Leave No One Behind: Guidance for Planning and Implementing Catch-up. Participants will be able to ask questions and share experiences in this interactive webinar.
