Gender and Covid-19 Vaccines: Listening to Women-focused Organizations in Asia and the Pacific


This report explores the perspectives and insights of women-focused organizations in the mentioned regions regarding COVID-19 vaccines. It covers the key findings, challenges, and recommendations presented by these organizations about gender-specific considerations in vaccine distribution, access, and the overall impact of the pandemic on women.

Combatting the COVID-19 pandemic requires equitable distribution of safe and effective vaccines, however, women and girls are impacted by gaps both in the supply side and the demand side that hamper equitable distribution of the vaccine. Very few of the vaccines are going to those most vulnerable. The vaccine rollout in Asia and the Pacific has been relatively slow and staggered amid secondary waves of the virus.
