COVID-19, Gender, and Disability Checklist: Ensuring Human Rights-Based Sexual and Reproductive Health for Women, Girls, and Gender Non-conforming Persons with Disabilities during the COVID-19 Pandemic

This COVID-19, Gender, and Disability Checklist (the Checklist) is intended to guide States, healthcare providers, and other stakeholders—as well as United Nations Country Teams (UNCTs) providing guidance on COVID-19 response and recovery efforts—on how to ensure the provision of rights-based and gender- and disability responsive SRH for women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and other emergencies. It should also be used as a tool to guide recovery efforts from the COVID-19 pandemic, so as to ensure that rights at the intersection of gender and disability are respected, protected, and fulfilled as part of that recovery.

This Checklist is divided into three sections, focused on (1) SRHR during the COVID-19 pandemic; (2) Social determinants of SRH during the COVID-19 pandemic; and (3) Ensuring SRHR for women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities in the recovery from the pandemic.

Under each section, there are several “Key Actions” for States and healthcare providers to take to ensure that their actions are rights-based and inclusive of gender and disability in the COVID-19 response and recovery. These “Key Actions” are the result of findings from 20 virtual consultations with and responses to written surveys from more than 250 women, men, girls, and gender nonconforming persons with disabilities conducted by UNFPA, Women Enabled International, and eight national and regional partner organizations throughout the world, as well as from applicable human rights standards and guidelines.
