CARE’s initial submission to the IDSC Inquiry into COVID-19 Humanitarian Monitoring focuses on immediate risks and threats. Informed by evidence from previous public health and economic crises, CARE is deeply concerned about the implications of COVID-19 on women and girls in development and humanitarian settings. Using findings from the Global Rapid Gender Analysis for COVID-19, the submission presents evidence of the risks posed for women and girls, particularly in relation to health including sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), economic empowerment and livelihoods, protection including against gender-based violence (GBV), and voice and leadership.
