Webinar: Vaccines to Vaccinations: Gender in Promoting Immunisation
26 April 2022
29 April 2022 (Fri) from 8:00-9:30 PM Malaysia Time
The United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH), the Gender and Health Hub and TheLancet Commission on Gender and Global Health are excited to invite you to the Vaccines to Vaccinations: Gender in Promoting Immunisation webinar on 29 April 2022 (Fri) from 8:00-9:30 PM Malaysia Time.
In this session, we will review the cost of gender inequity in the COVID-19 response, focusing on vaccination. More than a year into COVID-19 vaccine deployment, less than 50 countries are regularly reporting gender-disaggregated data. In this panel, we will hear from vaccination experts who discuss issues ranging from policy to practice. We will focus on the issues related to data reporting and collection, why international agencies are not mandating gender-disaggregated data, and what strategies could be used to change that.
Join us for a thought-provoking panel discussion on gender disparities in COVID-19 vaccination coverage with Commissioner Nina Schwalbe and esteemed panelists, with session moderated by Pascale Allotey of UNU-IIGH.
