This resource pack aims to aid a range of actors such as United Nations Country Teams, civil society, governments, multilateral organizations, and others involved in COVID-19 response and recovery—as well as planning, response, and recovery from other crises—to ensure that their policies and practices are inclusive of women and girls with disabilities and their rights are promoted. This resource pack consists of a Compendium of good practices, SRHR checklist and Impact Assessment and focuses on three objectives:

  1. Ensuring gender- and disability-inclusive SRH during the COVID-19 pandemic
