This project works to provide funding to local CSOs in fragile and conflict-affected states, who are actively engaged in delivering key resources and services to address the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. COVID-19 outbreaks have had significant, negative impacts in many countries. These impacts have been amplified in fragile and conflict-affected contexts where conflict drivers are further exacerbated. Local CSOs around the world are playing key roles in supporting efforts to respond to, and stem the spread of COVID-19. Project activities include: (1) persuading populations to follow public health directives; (2) advocating for specific needs for women and girls in response to COVID-19; and (3) supporting women who constitute 70% of the workers and care givers in the health and social sector globally, and are on the frontlines of the response.
