The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) invites you for a project launch focused on the impact of COVID-19 on women in the informal sector in India, Kenya and Uganda.
The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought a global socio-economic crisis, with profound implications for the well-being of individuals, households and communities. It has further deepened existing social inequalities and has heightened the risks for gender-based violence (GBV) and violation of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) among marginalized groups.
As countries move to mitigate the health costs of the pandemic, the policy choices they make carry economic and social costs that are largely borne by vulnerable and low-income populations, among whom women are the most affected.
Join us on December 17th (3:00-4:30 PM EAT | 5:30-7:00 PM IST | 7:00-8:30 AM EDT) for the launch of our upcoming collaborative research, REBUILD, focused on the current challenges faced by women in the informal economy under COVID-19, as we aim to understand better the social and economic impact of policy responses to the pandemic.
