ABSTRACT

First 100 Days of COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific: A Gender Lens   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "This document highlights what we know about the gender impacts of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the Asia-Pacific region thus far. One hundred days since the first case was reported, we closely follow and contribute to the health response initiated by governments in the region and supported by the international community. While not all impacts of this pandemic are clear at this time, and the situation is evolving rapidly, it is clear that the gender and social inequalities that underpinned societies before the pandemic are now exacerbated, making bad situations for women and girls worse. Response and recovery efforts must place the needs of women and girls at the centre, and be grounded in the socio-economic realities that they face."
