With your support, we can help to remove the barriers people face in getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Vaccine inequality

COVID-19 doesn’t respect borders. It can put anybody at risk. But its impacts are hitting poor and underrepresented people — many of whom are women — the hardest. Some of our nearest neighbours are enduring horrendous outbreaks right now. They are desperately in need of support with their vaccine rollouts.

Less than five per cent of the adult population of Papua New Guinea has been able to receive their first COVID-19 vaccination.

How can the pandemic end when global inequality is preventing people from accessing lifesaving vaccines?

Please help us tear down the barriers that are preventing people from getting vaccinated with a donation today.

The challenges

Gaps in vaccination

Women in lower & middle income countries are less likely to get vaccines. In India 37% of women have been vaccinated and in Timor-Leste, it is 33%.

Health Workers at Risk

Women make up 70% of health workers worldwide, and they are most likely to be in patient care roles that expose them to COVID-19.

Women get less information

In Iraq, 64% of men and 52% of women know where they could get a vaccine. 50% of men and only 30% of women know how to register for a vaccine.

Women are less free to leave their homes

Even before COVID-19, many women had to ask permission from men to go to a health clinic or access healthcare.
