ABSTRACT

Rapid Gender Analysis: COVID-19 in the United States   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The United States, one of the wealthiest countries in the world, also has the highest number of cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the world, far surpassing global hotspots like Italy and China, with cases continuing to rise at concerning rates. In this humanitarian crisis, CARE is bringing its global expertise--from more than 75 years of implementing humanitarian responses in more than 100 countries--to the context of COVID-19 in the United States. In addition to its expertise in humanitarian and crisis response, CARE developed the industry-standard Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) that builds upon several efforts by humanitarian actors to bring gender to the forefront of programming. The standardized tool to enable humanitarian actors to quickly build crisis responses that take into account the different needs of people of all genders, as well as disenfranchised groups, the extreme poor, and other groups often overlooked by policy, crisis planning, and data."
