Disease outbreaks and crises including the COVID-19 pandemic affect people differently. Understanding who is most at risk or affected involves focusing on identifying vulnerable groups such as girls and women, people with disabilities, older people, and migrants and refugees. However, there is no such thing as uniform vulnerable groups. Vulnerable persons can belong to more than one group at the same time because people are shaped by a variety of interacting factors and influences. To capture such realities and complexities requires a gender and intersectionality informed assessment of COVID-19. This guideline developed by UN Women, provides a step-by-step guidance designed to produce an in-depth picture of the situation, needs and capacities of women, men, boys and girls of diverse backgrounds to inform recommendations and actions that leave no one behind.

UN Women and International Labour Organization are implementing a multi-country programme to promote decent employment opportunities for women in Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine by addressing the structural causes of inequalities that women face in the region. While this programme aims to tackle common issues across countries, it will do so by taking into consideration country context specificities. The multi-country programme seeks to address barriers through a comprehensive approach that works both at the macro, meso and micro levels, aiming to enhance productive employment and decent work for women in the region by promoting equitable laws and policies, engaging public, private and community actors, and reducing the uneven burden of unpaid care work. The program will be locally adapted by programme partners and build on global strategies and lessons learned.
