Priorities for Gender Equality in Yemen’s COVID-19 Response

Authors/editor(s): UN Women Yemen

An action brief has been developed by UN Women Yemen addressing the “Priorities for Gender Equality in Yemen’s COVID-19 Response”. The brief explores the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and its gender dimensions in conflict settings with a focus on gender-based violence (GBV), women’s participation in decision-making, labour markets and livelihoods. The paper outlines gender issues and recommendations for stakeholders and national/international actors with the aim of providing effective mitigation measures and actions in response to COVID-19. The brief recommends that the priorities of women and girls be integrated and addressed in Yemen’s COVID-19 crisis response and plans by all concerned actors.
