Women’s Needs and Gender Equality in Lebanon’s COVID-19 Response

Women’s and girls’ immediate and long-term needs must be addressed and integrated into Lebanon’s response, in order to both ensure women’s access to services and human rights, and to enable women to equally continue to contribute to shaping the response. Based on lessons learned from other epidemics, namely Ebola and Zika virus, this paper outlines gender issues related to the COVID-19 outbreak and response in Lebanon. A checklist for both immediate and longer-term action is provided proposed for COVID-19 stakeholders in Lebanon.
