COVID-19 is unravelling decades of progress for girls’ equality. Together, we must stand with girls and stop the setback.
The challenges for young people, particularly girls, range from disruption in education, increased risk of violence and exploitation, reduced access to sexual and reproductive health services and economic impacts for years to come.
Our crisis response focuses on communicating public health information, installing hand-washing facilities and distributing hygiene kits whilst ensuring that the needs and rights of girls and young women are addressed.
We will ensure girls, young women, children and vulnerable groups are protected and supported as the COVID-19 crisis unfolds.
India is experiencing the world’s worst outbreak, with new cases surging past 400,000 per day.
