The Boost Community, in partnership with the USAID-funded MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity project, will convene a four-week virtual short-course on gender and immunization starting June 23 to increase immunization professionals’ competency and confidence around planning and developing gender-aware and -transformative activities to improve equity in immunization.
What will I learn?
After completing this course, you will not only have the knowledge, tools, skills, capacity, and confidence to address gender barriers to immunization, but also be able to:
- Develop and implement gender-responsive interventions
- Carry out practical monitoring, evaluation, and learning functions
- Document efforts to integrate gender into immunization activities
- Recognize opportunities for accessing support for this work
Who should apply? This course is designed for sub-national and national immunization professionals working in or supporting immunization in lower- and middle-income countries. We highly encourage women to apply as we are aiming for gender parity across this cohort.

How much time will I need? The time commitment is approximately 2 hours per week, which includes participation in live sessions and brief homework assignments.
Is there a certification? A certificate of completion from Boost and MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity project will be provided based on attendance of all course sessions and completion of all homework assignments.
