Increasing Access To Vaccination Could Help Address Gender Gaps In Education
ONE: Op-Ed: How immunization helps improve education for girls
Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, discusses the role of routine immunization in addressing gender gaps in education, writing, “As global health agencies such as the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and Gavi come together with governments to discuss ways to increase access to vaccination and protect children from disease, we are simultaneously helping to close the gender gap in education. By helping to reach the one-in-five children still missing out on basic vaccines, governments are ensuring that their children — both boys and girls — are not just healthier, but maybe even better educated too” (4/25).
