The COVID-19 vaccine introduction toolbox equips all countries to prepare for and implement COVID-19 vaccination by providing guidance, tools, and training. This toolbox is intended to support Ministries of Health, health workers, partner organizations, and other stakeholders.
The Vaccination Demand Hub is a network of partner organizations innovating together to understand why people miss out, to improve acceptance and uptake of vaccines, and to ensure that everyone everywhere is protected against vaccine preventable diseases.

The Gender and Health Hub is a network of policymakers, researchers, and implementers working at the intersection of gender and global health.
The Hub publishes synthesised policy-relevant evidence and best practices to support gender integration in health programming. Our aim is to bridge the gap between knowledge and action, build a diverse community to share learnings, and catalyse evidence for impact.
The Hub has a Buzzboard which helps users connect with each other over common interests in the field of gender and health.

This informational guide presents six strategies for immunization coordinators to build vaccine confidence within their health system or clinic.
It includes tangible actions to promote confidence, communication, and uptake of COVID-19 vaccine, which can help support confidence among providers and patients.
This site serves as a collection of resources from around the world that can be used to gain further information about vaccines and their recommended usage.
The purpose of the Vaccine Confidence Project is to monitor public confidence in immunization programs by building an information surveillance system for early detection of public concerns around vaccines; by applying a diagnostic tool to data collected to determine the risk level of public concerns in terms of their potential to disrupt vaccine programmes; and, finally, to provide analysis and guidance for early response and engagement with the public to ensure sustained confidence in vaccines and immunisation.
This initiative also defines a Vaccine Confidence Index™ (VCI) as a tool for mapping confidence globally.
