Gender-Based Violence during a Sanitary Crisis:The Case of Covid-19 Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia


The purpose of this Rapid Assessment on Gender-Based Violence before, during and after the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 lockdown is to take stock of the current situation and assess the multiple effects of confinement due to a health crisis on women and girls, including economic impacts, where possible.

The ambition is not to conduct a prevalence survey, but rather to assess the extent of the phenomenon through the chosen approach, to confirm the hypotheses as to the causes and consequences of this violence. It will be possible to assess unmet needs in terms of protection, security and health services during such crisis and the ways to access them.

Consultation with women, associations and institutions/organisations that are closely monitoring the situation will allow reflection on the solutions to be proposed so that women’s needs are met and rights are taken into account in the proposed measures.
