This article illustrates some of the limitations of the statistics that have been widely publicized in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, provides additional contextual information to better understand the risks women and girls are facing, and outlines some priority recommendations to Governments, policy makers, donors and key humanitarian and development actors for addressing gender-based violence in the context of COVID-19.
Governments’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have had devastating effects on women and girls. Gender-Based Violence is a problem of human-rights, public health and development. It is also a problem that has had devastating effects for women and girls during the COVID-19 pandemic. This real-time emergent learning brief has been prepared for UNICEF Country Offices and Practitioners as they respond to gender-based violence during the pandemic. Drawing on evidence from UNICEF country experiences, the brief identifies emerging risks related to gender-based violence; highlights programme responses and adaptations; and outlines key points for programming, advocacy and systems change.
In response to the unprecedented educational challenges created by
school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 90 per cent of
countries have implemented some form of remote learning policy. This
factsheet estimates the potential reach of digital and
broadcast remote learning responses, finding that at least 463 million
students around the globe remain cut off from education, mainly due to a
lack of remote learning policies or lack of equipment needed for
learning at home. This data primarily stems from the UNESCO-UNICEF-World
Bank Survey on National Education Responses to COVID-19 School Closures
(June-July 2020), as well as household microdata from sources like
Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS), Demographic and Health
UNICEF Innocenti's Children and COVID-19 Library is a database collecting research from around the world on COVID-19 and its impacts on children and adolescents.
