We are trying to contribute bringing the equity focus on immunisation to the forefront of international and national health policies. In a recent overview of systematic reviews we have been able to identify a large body of evidence on imbalances in access to vaccination according to equity attributes. Yet, the evidence on how to overcome those imbalances and achieve a fairer distribution of health care resources remains astonishingly meagre. Additionally, certain attributes (i.e. religion and minorities, such as those defined by sexual orientation) remain heavily unexplored.
Please, help us to build awareness on the need to research on what works to revert the unjust distribution of health care resources.
