    GAVI Alliance Gender Policy

    The goal of the GAVI Alliance Gender Policy is to increase immunisation coverage by supporting countries to overcome gender-related barriers to accessing immunisation services and to promote equity of access and utilisation for all girls and boys, women and men to immunisation and related health services that respond to their different health needs.
