Designed for social and behaviour change (SBC), immunization and health teams, as well as national partners responsible for the planning and implementation of immunization demand efforts, this report provides guidance on how to integrate a gender perspective with concrete recommendations. The report starts by introducing demand generation in the context of immunization and the gender responsive continuum. Then, it outlines recommendations for integrating gender into immunization demand promotion activities using the SBC programme cycle as a framework. Illustrative examples are embedded throughout in order to make this resource user-friendly and actionable.

Routine and COVID-19 vaccine interventions are included. The cases comprise both gender responsive and transformative interventions.
This toolkit was developed to support organisations, step-by-step, in their journey towards gender transformation. It contains a participatory gender self-assessment in 3 stages designed to assess the organisational commitments and practices, and to which extent they integrate a gender-transformative approach. It supports the process of self-reflection about how gender-transformative approaches are realised and practised within the organisation’s own structures and networks. It provides guidelines to take affirmative action through an Organisational Gender Action Plan (OGAP) which can be implemented and measured over time.
