COVID-19 and Women

CARE places a special focus on women and girls, who often face specific challenges during emergencies. Based on CARE’s past experience, we can anticipate disproportionate economic and social effects on women and girls. We are preparing accordingly to support women in dealing with the fallout of a devastating pandemic. Among the critical concerns that are informing our developing COVID-19 response strategy:​

  • ​Women as caregivers​
  • Women has healthcare workers​
  • Women as breadwinners​
  • Threats of violence​
  • Disruptions to sexual and reproductive healthcare​
