COVID-19, Gender, and Disability Checklist: Preventing and Addressing Gender-Based Violence against Women, Girls, and Gender Non-conforming Persons with Disabilities during the COVID-19 Pandemic

This COVID-19 Gender, and Disability Checklist: Preventing and Addressing Gender-Based Violence (GBV) against Women, Girls, and Gender Nonconforming Persons with Disabilities during the COVID-19 Pandemic (the GBV and Disability Checklist) is intended to guide a wide range of States, GBV support service providers, and other stakeholders—as well as United Nations Country Teams (UNCTs) providing guidance on pandemic response and recovery efforts—on how to prevent and respond to GBV against women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and other emergencies. It is also a tool to guide recovery efforts from the COVID-19 pandemic and 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) Addressing the root causes of and preventing GBV against women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic;

(2) Ensuring access to GBV services, including justice mechanisms, for women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic; and

(3) Preventing and addressing GBV against women, girls, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities in the recovery from COVID-19. Under each section, there are several “Key Actions” for States and GBV service providers to take to ensure that their actions are rights-based and inclusive of gender and disability in the COVID-19 response and recovery.
