Keeping women safe during COVID-19
The effects of the COVID crisis on women are profound. Women make up 70% of frontline healthcare workers worldwide, take on a disproportionate burden of unpaid care work, and domestic violence is already rising with isolation. We’re working closely with the World Health Organisation to collect disaggregated data on the effects of COVID19 on women, provide technical expertise to governments in building responses that work for women, and providing essential services with our community partners on the ground. This work urgently needs your support. We’re asking you to help mitigate the damaging effects of COVID on women around the world, starting by making one pledge today.
