WAY Programme: scaling up interventions to reach vulnerable women and girls amid COVID-19 Pandemic

According to findings from the Rapid Gender Assessment conducted by CARE during the period, women and girls were disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Violence against women and girls was on the rise, and survivors had difficulty accessing Sexual Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR) and Gender Based Violence (GBV) services at health facilities. In response to the changing context amid COVID-19 pandemic, CARE International in Uganda in partnership with UNFPA, under the Women Adolescents and Youth (WAY) rights empowerment programme, with funding from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs DANIDA- developed key strategies to support vulnerable women and girls. WAY's major objective was to enhance women's and youth's access to and utilization of quality SRHR, and GBV services. See details of the report here: https://www.careuganda.org/newsdetail.php?id=27
