ADBI News Release | 06 October 2023

Tokyo, Japan – This ADBI e-learning course, coproduced with the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health and in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, examines the interlinkages between gender and the delivery, access, and uptake of vaccinations and immunization.

Addressing Gender Gaps in Vaccinations and Immunization: A Life-Course Approach explains how health systems are tied with social expectations and perceptions of the characteristics, aptitudes, roles, and behaviors of women and men, boys and girls, and people of other genders.

It draws on practical examples from across the globe of social and structural dynamics that generate gender inequalities in vaccination coverage across the life stages. It also spotlights keys to overcoming gender-related barriers and driving equitable vaccine development.
