Learning about Uganda’s integration of gender evidence into the country’s Advocacy and Demand Generation strategy.
HOW YOU CAN USE THIS MATERIAL:
Public health leaders can leverage the insights gained from Uganda’s initiative to integrate a gender lens in guiding ongoing immunisation efforts around COVID-19.
While Uganda has made significant progress in increasing access to immunisation in recent years, vaccine inequity remains a challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic has further disrupted immunisation efforts and disproportionately affected women and children in communities where vaccine coverage was already low. The PATH Uganda team supported the Ugandan government in the development of an advocacy and demand generation handbook with a gender lens to address the inequitable distribution of immunisations among women and girls. This case study summarizes the strategy and outlines the challenges and enabling factors.
