Mainstreaming gender equality in COVID-19 response

16 September 2020

This guidance note sets out minimal and practical standards to be applied through all Plan International Canada programming to mitigate and address the gendered impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


The COVID-19 pandemic has often invisible and egregious consequences specifically on women and girls both in the short and long term with far-reaching and wide-ranging devastating impacts. These have the potential to derail and reverse the tenuous global gains made towards gender equality and the rights of women and girls, if not addressed head-on through gender-responsive and increasingly gender transformative approaches. 

This short guidance note sets out minimal and practical standards to be applied through all Plan International Canada programming to mitigate and address those gendered impacts.
