Whose vaccine is it anyway? Category prioritisation and gender in the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine

What are the persistent gender barriers that continue to shape and exacerbate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic?

By drawing attention to the interrelation of vaccine prioritisation and gender in the global roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, this event aims to provide a data-driven approach to understanding current vaccine inequities and the role of gender in shaping them.

The second aim is to provide actionable insights for participants, especially policy-makers and present organisations. We hope this enables stakeholders to follow-up with concrete actions to address the implications of vaccine inequity for a feminist recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The third objective is to spark health considerations within the feminist foreign policy context. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly illustrated the interlinkages between feminism, global public health and foreign policy. Here, we hope provide an angle on the interrelation between global health, gender and foreign policy; and ultimately, push for an incorporation of global health in feminist foreign policy.

This event is co-hosted by the Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker and the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CCFP) as part of the activities leading up to the Feminist Foreign Policy Summit.
