APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN: Virtual Course on Gender & Immunization: Opportunities for Action

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.

When is it? The course will run from June 23 – July 14, 2022 with mandatory live sessions held every Thursday at 12:00 PM GMT (check local time) for 90 minutes.

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.

How much does it cost? This course is FREE for Boost members.

How do I register? If you are interested in participating* in this course, please fill out this brief application form by Wednesday, June 15.

If accepted into the course, you will receive an onboarding email approximately one week prior to the course start date with more details on how to attend live sessions and join your peers through the Boost Community platform.
