RCCE for COVID-19 Vaccine Demand in Eastern and Southern Africa: Special Edition on Health Workers

The Collective Service, UNICEF
Summary
Health care workers (HCW) are a priority group for COVID-19 vaccination. Apart from the risk of COVID-19 infection, HCW are facing other challenges such as extended working hours, increased workload, lack of recognition, inadequate pay and resources, prolonged use of ill-fitted PPE, harassment, violence, stigma and discrimination, lack of sanitation and hygiene facilities, and poor mental health, including burnout. Mitigating and reducing these challenges is essential to protecting their well-being and reducing the spread of COVID-19.
