Integrating Gender into the COVID-19 Vaccine Response: A Technical Brief

Many gender-related barriers impact immunization services, including access to, and uptake of, COVID- 19 vaccination. These barriers can include social norms; access to education; ability to make decisions and control resources; health provider attitudes, biases, and preferences; inequitable policies, laws, and regulations; and governance and stakeholder engagement. Failure to address these factors will impede achieving widespread vaccine uptake and greater community protection.

This technical brief focuses on recommendations to integrate gender perspectives in COVID-19 vaccine promotion efforts as part of the overall risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) response.

This technical brief is also available in French and Spanish.
