Social gender barriers to immunization
This 1.5 hrs. webinar on social gender barriers to immunization is the first in a series of three sessions on gender. The second webinar, also on the ZD CoP platform, is on 9 June and the third, on the Teach to Reach platform, is on 17 June. This first webinar will provide participants with an understanding of key concepts of gender-related barriers such as gender versus sex, intersectionality, applying a “gender lens” to programming, and the gender continuum in programming, i.e., gender blind vs gender responsive vs gender transformative interventions. The webinar will include an interactive session with practical examples and case studies of the role that gender plays in communities, with examples of strategies that have been implemented in low- and middle-income countries to overcome social gender-related
barriers to immunization. Following this webinar series, participants will have a better understanding of the importance of addressing gender inequity as part of health systems strengthening, through efforts
at community level as well as in each tier of the health system. Participants will learn the basics of conducting a gender analysis within broader coverage and equity assessments (CEA), and they will be
encouraged to develop individual action plans for ensuring a gender lens in their own work.
