Assessment of the Gender Responsiveness of Measures for COVID-19 Prevention, Response and Recovery in Ethiopia

Authors/editor(s): UN Women

COVID-19 has heightened awareness and the negative impacts resulting from gender disparities, particularly for women with intersectional identities and multiple vulnerabilities, who are impacted by the social and economic fallout of the pandemic. UN Women Ethiopia has been supporting initiatives which alleviate the negative impacts of COVID-19 on women and girls throughout the pandemic and the report assesses the gender responsiveness of the COVID-19 related prevention, response and recovery measures adopted in Ethiopia by Government ministries and agencies, civil society organisations (CSOs) and international organisations (IOs) across health, social and economic sectors. The study was commissioned by UN Women Ethiopia in collaboration with the Ministry of Women, Children and Youth (MoWCY) and highlights the successes achieved, the gaps and constraints that remain, and the priorities that will assist in the process of recovery in Ethiopia.
