Global gender analysis on COVID-19, health and protection
Created: 22/10/2020 +


This thematic report is part of the ACAPS Gender & COVID-19 series providing global analysis on the gendered impact of the pandemic in key areas of humanitarian programming such as livelihood, income and employment or health and protection. This report provides an overview of publicly available information on the identified and projected impacts of the pandemic on gender-based violence (GBV), healthcare provision and access, and other health-related risks. The report focuses on countries experiencing humanitarian crises which have undertaken gender analyses at the national and subnational levels. Although limited (see “Methodology and Limitations” section), ACAPS hopes this analysis will inform inclusive and nuanced humanitarian responses by highlighting the similar and different ways specific groups have been exposed to the direct and indirect consequences of COVID-19 and by encouraging ongoing intersectional analysis.
