USAID's Gender And COVID-19 Guidance Brief

Speeches Shim

The outbreak of COVID-19 has had- and will continue to have- a tremendous impact on countries worldwide until the pandemic is controlled. COVID-19 will have long-term effects across a range of sectors in countries around the world, potentially countering development gains, including those related to gender equality. Responses to previous global public health emergencies and pandemics and COVID-19 to date clearly show that integrating a commitment to gender equality and women's empowerment in activity design and implementation is vital to supporting affected communities and saving lives. Within this context, it is critical to adapt programming to respond to how COVID-19 is affecting women and girls, men and boys of different ages, disabilities, ethnicities, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, migrations statuses, and socio-economic and demographic groups. The following summarizes a more in-depth technical brief, USAID's Gender and COVID-19 Guidance.
