The Impact of COVID-19 on Women and Girls with Disabilities

This resource pack aims to aid a range of actors such as United Nations Country Teams, civil society, governments, multilateral organizations, and others involved in COVID-19 response and recovery—as well as planning, response, and recovery from other crises—to ensure that their policies and practices are inclusive of women and girls with disabilities and their rights are promoted. It consists of an impact assessment, compendium of good practices, SRHR checklist and GBV checklist, and a Know Your Rights guide and focuses on three objectives:

- Ensuring gender- and disability-inclusive SRH during the COVID-19 pandemic;
- Meeting social determinants of health for women and girls with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic;
- Ensuring long-term SRHR for women and girls with disabilities in the recovery from COVID-19 and beyond.
