Gender Bulletin 114

Saturday, May 2, 2020

Since the WHO declared that the COVID-19 outbreak is a pandemic, UNRWA areas of operations were affected as COVID-19 cases were detected and confinement measures established to circumvent the spread of the virus. UNRWA adapted its operations to provide essential services to Palestine refugees by shifting to emergency preparedness measures and protocols that will continue the provision of primary health care services, remote self-learning education, and cash assistance and the Gender Section is working on ensuring that gender is mainstreamed and GBV is addressed.
