Key advocacy messages on gender equality and social inclusion in covid -19 emergency response
The following advocacy messages were endorsed by the HCT on 25 03 2020. They were developed on the basis of the IASC Policy Statement on Gender Equality in Humanitarian Action (November 2017), and in light of lessons learned from the Ebola and Zika outbreaks and emerging gender impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to mobilize inter-agency support within the Nepal Humanitarian Country Team in ensuring these principles are reflected in the emergency response activities in support of the Government of Nepal. The Gender in Humanitarian Action Task Team stands ready to support this process.
